    Jos Buttler refused to put a limit on his rapid run-scoring as hosts England go in search of a first men’s World Cup title.

    Only Buttler himself, with a 46-ball effort against Pakistan in November 2015, has scored a quicker ODI hundred for England. But the 28-year-old, who has five of England quickest 10 ODI hundreds to his credit, believes a new national record could be within his reach.

    “Absolutely,” he said following his match-winning 110 not out against Pakistan. “When the opportunities arise, it gives you lots of confidence. We’ve seen other guys around the world show it’s possible.”

    “In the last few years, I’ve had some brilliant experiences. A couple more years older and worked things out a bit better, managing to drip-feed them into my game really well. I’m really chasing that consistency and want to perform every day. That’s been a big part of the last few years to try and be more consistent,” he said.

    England spearhead James Anderson could be in for a “painful few days” according to Lancashire coach Glen Chapple after suffering a knee injury while on county duty.

    Anderson, England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, was hit on the inside of his knee by a drive from James Fuller during Lancashire’s four-wicket defeat by champions Hampshire in a One-Day Cup semi-final on Sunday.

    The 36-year-old Anderson left the field at Southampton and will now require further medical assessment on Monday. “It is a nasty blow in a painful area,” said Chapple. “We don’t know but we think that it will be a nasty bruise that will settle down in the next few days. The physio will see him in the morning and he walked off there.”
