    Buttler is easily the greatest ODI cricketer of all time.

    Marcus Trescothick will always be my favorite English List A cricketer. Best ever.

    Buttler probably underperformed this WC given his talent and the level at which he has been performing over the past few years. My opinion on him has changed after his performances in the last two IPL seasons - I get the feeling that he would average significantly more if he was batting higher in the order and was allowed more time to build his innings. In fact, his ODI record by batting position indicates as much - much better averages and SRs at 4/5 vs 6. To some extent, it is a curse to be as versatile a player as he is.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Really? He's actually that good?

    To me he's probably the first English born explosive batsman to play for his country, otherwise most explosive bats who played for England came either from South Africa or NZ (Keiswetter, KP, Stokes and etc.)

    His current ICC rank is 17 . That is enough to overtake Tendulkar and Gilchrist imo. He will overtake Dhoni and Bevan when he gets his ICC ranking above 15.

    His record at 4/5 is what it is because if England send him in early they're doing well.

    buttler is a freak. he suffers in these comparisons because he's still mid-career but when he's done i wouldn't be surprised to see him alongside gilchrist and dhoni.

    he's definitely the batsman im most scared of in the english side, and there's a few good ones there. in the cancelled final he was the only guy able to tick along at a good rate with no risk. he's got that annoying cdg/jadeja ability to time the ball well on any pitch but he's also got the root/kane/ross match intelligence to control the innings and read the pitch and not do anything stupid.

    he's ****in annoying and i hope wagner knocks his head off this summer.

    He's a great batsman but his keeping is a lot sloppier than Dhoni/ Gilchrist. He could force his way into an ATXI for his batting alone though if he keeps this up. 40@120 is an utterly insane record.

    A few more years of playing the way he has been playing and he'll eclipse Dhoni. His keeping is very incognito though which I guess is not a bad thing.

    He's already a better batsman than Gilchrist imo. Ezplosive opening batsmen are dime a dozen now, but how many can do what Buttler does down the order?

    Think he had a good world cup with the gloves.

    I don't think it's a question that he is England's best ever ODI player. We've never had another one day cricketer that every other side in the world would love to have. This is a new thing.

    His keeping has improved significantly. Could be better to spin though.
