Jos Buttler continued his good form in this year’s Big Bash after hitting his third half century in four games on Wednesday against Perth Scorchers.
The Lancashire wicket keeper, who was England’s second-highest run-scorer over the course of 2018 in Test cricket with 760 runs, including his maiden Test hundred against India.
Buttler, currently playing for Sydney Thunder, is currently the leading run-scorer in the Big Bash with 250 runs in 50 innings, averaging 50.
Speaking after Wednesday’s one-run win over Perth Scorchers, Buttler said: “The last year is the best I’ve ever played for a prolonged period of time.
“I’ve had some great experiences over the last year, and I’m probably at an age now where I understand my own game a lot better and I’m just trying to keep learning.
“I’ve got a lot of confidence and quite a bit of clarity as well. That’s always something you fight with a little bit in the game. There’s that constant battle of trying to improve, but not losing what you’ve got and that kind of thing.
“It gives you a lot of clarity and you can make peace with it because this is what I’ve got, and I’m going to be the best version of myself and not get too caught up in what other people try to do. I’m just trying to enjoy my game and not have any expectations either.
“It’s good fun. Cricket is great because you can be so creative, and how I see the game, I love that side of it. I enjoy practising and doing those things in the middle.”
