Former England captain Michael Vaughan believes that England’s wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler gives the team the best chances of winning the World Cup next year.
Buttler’s with his unbeaten 110 made sure that England successfully chased the 205 runs total set by Australia and helped England complete its first-ever 5-0 whitewash of Australia in any format.
"I look at the England side and Buttler is the one," Vaughan told BBC Radio's Test Match Special.
"Teams that win trophies have X-factor cricketers. He's right up there," he added.
"I've got everything crossed that he doesn't pick up an injury. If he's fit next year, they've got the best chance they have ever had," insisted the former Yorkshire batsman, a veteran of 82 Tests and 86 ODIs from 1999-2008.
England, who are currently at the top in ICC rankings, will host the 2019 World Cup.
