Buttler cameo puts England into driving seat

Harjit Mehat | cricket20

A big hitting cameo from Jos Butler was enough to put England in command against South Africa at the half way point of their rain shortened innings at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

Butler smashed 32 runs from just ten balls which included two boundaries and three sixes to help England record a commanding total of 118-5 from just 11 overs after the match was shortened because of heavy afternoon rain.

Craig Keiswetter (50) started the innings in style with a quick fire half century before Butler stole the show to put the defending t20 World Cup champions in control as they look to end their summer with victory before flying out to Sri Lanka.
