• Coach says escape act displayed kind of grit his team needs
• ‘He showed the rest of them a blueprint of how to go about it’
Trevor Bayliss wants England to learn from Jos Buttler’s icy display of escapology at Old Trafford, describing the unbeaten century that completed an historic first 5-0 whitewash over Australia as a batting blueprint.
Speaking after Buttler’s alchemic 110 not out from 122 balls chased down 206 from a perilous 114 for eight on Sunday, the England head coach was left agog at how the right-hander’s summer is panning out, given he averages 108 from 14 innings since the start of May spread across the Indian Premier League, Test cricket and one-dayers.
