WI vs ENG 2nd ODI Match : The West Indies team, which could not qualify for the ICC World Cup 2023, is once again seen in the ODI field. A three-match ODI series is being played between England and West Indies, of which two matches have been played so far. West Indies surprised everyone by winning the first match, but in the very next match, England made a spectacular comeback and won the second match. Now the series will be decided from the third match. But even before this, England captain Jos Buttler has achieved a new feat. His new achievement is also being discussed because only four batsmen of England were able to reach this milestone, but now the fifth name of Jos Buttler has also been added.

Jos Buttler becomes the fifth batsman to score five thousand runs in ODI for England

Captain Jos Buttler played a big role in England’s victory over West Indies. Coming at number six, he played an excellent inning of 58 runs in 45 balls. This included four fours and three sixes. With this, Jos Buttler also completed his 5000 runs in ODIs. Although many batsmen from all over the world have touched this figure in ODIs, before today only four batsmen from England had been able to do so. At number one is former captain Eoin Morgan, who has scored 6957 runs in ODIs. After this comes Joe Root, who has so far scored 6522 runs in ODIs. Eoin Bell had scored 5416 runs in his ODI career. Whereas Paul Collingwood had scored 5092 runs during his ODI career. Now Jos Buttler has 5022 runs in his name in this format.

England beat West Indies by six wickets

Talking about the second match, West Indies batted first in the match and the entire team could not even play its quota of 50 overs. The team had scored 202 runs losing all the wickets in 39.4 overs. Captain Shai Hope scored the highest innings of 68 runs and Sherfane Rutherford scored 63 runs. No other batsman was successful in playing a big innings. After this, England got a good start in chasing this target. Phil Salt scored 21 runs and Bill Jacques scored 73 runs. However, Jack Cowley and Ben Duckett returned to the pavilion after scoring three runs each, deepening the crisis for the team. But Harry Brook and captain Jos Buttler pulled the team out of this crisis and led the team to victory. England achieved this score in 32.5 overs at the loss of four wickets and won the match by six wickets.
