WATCH: Jos Buttler gives Windies’ Sheldon Cottrell a taste of his own medicine after smashing him for a six

England batsman Jos Buttler was in destructive touch as he ripped apart the West Indies bowling attack slamming 150 runs off 77 deliveries.

Jos Buttler was on fire as England demolished the West Indies bowling attack in the second ODI on Wednesday to post a whopping total of 418 runs in 50 overs. En-route his breath-taking 150-run knock Buttler gave Windies pacer Sheldon Cottrell a taste of his own medicine with a salute after hitting him for a six. The footage of Buttler trolling Cottrell has sent fans on Twitter into a frenzy.

Buttler slammed his highest ever individual score in ODIs – 150 off 77 balls laced with 13 fours and 12 sixes. He along with Eoin Morgan (103), and Alex Hales (82) powered England to a massive total. During his enthralling knock, Buttler looked in destructive touch as he sent Windies bowlers to the cleaners. He was clearly enjoying his batting in the middle as he went on troll Cottrell, who has popularised the ‘salute’ celebration. 

Buttler slammed the pacer for a big six before saluting him to remind him of his famous celebration. The video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

It was a high scoring affair at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada as hosts West Indies almost pulled off a victory after Chris Gayle’s heroics with the bat. Gayle continued his destructive form and slammed 162 runs off 97 balls breaking several records en-route. The explosive left-hander tore apart the English bowling attack tonking 11 boundaries and 14 sixes.

After losing opener John Campbell and Shai Hope early in the 419-run chase, Gayle combined with Darren Bravo (61) to keep scoring at the required run rate and post a staggering 176-run stand for the third wicket. However, after Bravo’s departure, the Windies middle-order crumbled as none of the batsmen could manage to match up with the required run rate. Carlos Brathwaite (50) and Ashley Nurse (43) came up with another brilliant effort towards the end but Windies eventually fell short by 29 runs.
