England and Pakistan lock horns once again in the fourth ODI of the five-match series at Nottingham on Friday.

The hosts hold a 2-0 lead in the series and are led into this encounter by Jos Buttler after Eoin Morgan was suspended for two games and fined 40 per cent of his match fee for a slow over rate in the third ODI.

Having won the toss, England elected to field at Trent Bridge.

Jos Buttler continues to draw plaudits for his Southampton ton.

Jason Roy has hailed England team-mate Jos Buttler as an “extreme talent” and said his brutal match-winning century in the second one-day international against Pakistan was no shock.

The England squad trained in Bristol on Monday ahead of the third ODI, with the dust only just setting on Buttler’s spectacular 50-ball ton in Southampton two days ago that underpinned a 12-run victory.

It was the second-fastest hundred by an England batsmen in one-day internationals – Buttler also holds the record with a 46-ball ton – and Roy said on Sky Sports: “He is as good as it gets to be honest.

“It is not kind of a shock.

“It is getting a bit routine for him to go out and play those innings, demoralising those guys at the top of the order that are kind of going at a run a ball, and he comes in and just blitzes it.

“He is an extreme talent, works hard for it and deserves everything he gets.”

Roy was also in the runs, hitting 87 on his return to action from a back spasm that followed on from hamstring trouble.

“I am 100 per cent fit,” Roy said.

“I spent six or seven weeks with my hamstring injury and fixing that, and then the back was quite a big issue, but it was resolved by the great medical staff we have.

“I feel better than I felt before, which is a nice feeling.”
