Buttler aims to make mark at World Cup.

CRICKET WICKETKEEPER-BATSMAN Jos Buttler hopes the World Cup can provide the perfect stage for his coming of age as an England player.

The 24-year-old has established himself as one of the most talented young players in world cricket.

But just under two years since he made his England one-day international debut, Buttler is desperate to take the next step and become a reliable match-winner.

He said: "It's great to have potential and it's great to have talent, but there comes a stage where you want to be someone that the media and commentators don't talk like that. They talk about you being a performer." YESTERDAY'S SUMMARY: Tour Match, Adelaide Australia 371 (G J Maxwell 122, D A Warner 104) v India 265 (A M Rahane 66, S Dhawan 59, A T Rayudu 53) Australia beat India by 106 runs.
