The 22-year-old stood like a rock as he joined Australian great Adam Gilchrist, South Africa stumper Mark Boucher, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former West Indies keeper Ridley Jocobs and countrymen Matt Prior and Alec Stewart.

Gilchrist had achieved the feat a staggering six times during his illustrious career. Born in Taunton, Somerset, Buttler made his ODI debut against Pakistan in February 2012. He turned out for Sussex in the last English county season.
