Bengaluru: England’s World Cup winning wicketkeeper Jos Buttler has heaped praise on one of the Indian cricketers calling him an “awesome” player who “affects” games with his big runs.

With the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) postponed indefinitely due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown in the country, teams have been in touch with their players on social media platforms.

Buttler, who played with Rohit at Mumbai Indians (MI), said he is an “effortless” cricketer and scores big runs.

“Rohit Sharma is an awesome player, effortless. I think quite a lot of Indian players have that awesome style. What I have noticed with Rohit is, I have obviously played with him few times for Mumbai (Indians), if he gets in, he goes on and makes big runs and affects the game, win games. He has scored four or five hundreds in the World Cup last year. In any T20 game, if he goes past 10, he is not out at the end of the game or at the end of the innings, 90 or 80,” Buttler said.
