After Jos Buttler century, Speaking at the interval, Nasser Hussain told Sky Sports, “He is a freak. Sometimes you don’t realise what you’ve got, because it’s right in front of you.”
“You travel the world and you talk to people about Jos Buttler, and they rave about this lad. I don’t like massive comments, but he’d have to be up there with the three or four greatest white-ball players of all time. “
“You’re talking Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, MS Dhoni, Viv Richards. I have to put Buttler in that category. ‘If you do it once, it’s a freak, but if you do it again and again and again; suddenly our very own Jos Buttler from Taunton is up among the greatest white-ball players to ever play the game. Sometimes we don’t build up our own cricketers enough. This bloke is so special, it’s untrue.”
