CRICKET- England’s Jason Roy feels his teammate Jos Butler is demoralizing the top order with his near perfect batting skills.

Butler blasted a stunning 50 ball century in Saturday’s second ODI against Pakistan, prompting former England captain Nasser Hussain to rank the 28-year-old among the all-time greats in this format.

“He’s as good as it gets to be honest,” Roy said. “It’s not a shock, in fact it’s getting a bit kind of routine for him to come out and play those sort of innings.

“He’s almost demoralising the guys at the top of the order that are going at a run a ball and he comes in and just blitzes it.”

Buttler made 110 not out at two-runs-a-ball rate which is higher than the conventional run-a-ball rate.
