England star Buttler ready to serve up more record-breaking performances

Mohammad Amir ruled out of third ODI against England; doubtful for World Cup

You travel the world and you talk to people about Jos Buttler, and they rave about this lad.

Opening batsman Bairstow's blistering 128 off 93 balls helped World Cup hosts England to a six-wicket win in the third one-day global on Tuesday as they went 2-0 up in a five-match series with two to play.

A Pakistan attack missing the ill Mohammad Amir took a pounding, with Hasan conceding 81 runs from his maximum 10 overs and Afridi 80. This was Buttler's eighth century in 129 matches at this level, with the England ODI wicket-keeper now having scored 3,497 runs at an average of 42. Pakistan were probably favourites for quite a bit of that (chase) with a guy 130-odd not out and looking pretty imperious. "I've just asked the bowlers the same thing and they didn't have an answer either".

Roy made 76 and there were also worthy contributions from Moeen Ali (46 not out), Joe Root (43) and Ben Stokes (37).

Muted response from China as punishing United States tariffs kick in
The US hiked tariffs on $200B of Chinese imports with almost 6,000 products now incurring a 25% levy, up from 10% previously. Liu, China's top economic official, said the country's economy was improving after bottoming out at the end of past year .


Earlier, Imam-ul-Haq's excellent career-best 151 saw Pakistan to 358 for nine.

Jason Roy (87) and Jonny Bairstow (51) provided England with a great platform to work with, though their 115-run opening stand would have been curtailed had Bairstow not survived an lbw review.

So easy did England make it look that a score of more than 400 would have been within their compass as there were still 5.1 overs left when skipper Eoin Morgan struck the victory run. "But the more responsibility we've given them, they've reacted really well", he added.

"The external pressure will be there no matter what all the way through the World Cup". "I don't think we're going to stop him, we've got to find a way to get him out".

Campaigning in WB to end tomorrow after EC's unprecedented action
Addressing a presser, Shah blamed Banerjee for Tuesday's clashes between ABVP and TMCP supporters at a rally in Kolkata . "The reason behind the violence is Trinamool Congress , not Bharatiya Janata Party ", Shah told reporters on Wednesday.


The only downside for England was that Morgan has risked a potential one-match ban for his side's slow over rates.

But Pakistan, thanks mainly to opener Fakhar Zaman's 138, stayed in the game before a target of 19 off the last over, bowled by Chris Woakes, proved beyond them as they finished on 361 for seven.

Morgan was fined 20 per cent of his match fee from that game, his players received 10 per cent fines.

England knew that by committing another minor over-rate breach in an ODI within 12 months with Morgan as captain, that it would be deemed a second offence by the 32-year-old. Although this is an official game, we expect teams to treat this as practice for World Cup.

Adam Gase Opposed Jets Signing Le'Veon Bell
Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could be a leading contender to land the job. Heimerdinger also worked with Maccagnan in Houston and had been with the Jets for just one season as the VP of player personnel.


He had to play the ongoing series against England to have any chance of making it to the World Cup but the fate seems to be not on his side.
