Jos Buttler hit the first century of the Twenty20 World Cup as his unbeaten 101 guided England to 163 for four against Sri Lanka on Monday.

Buttler smashed six fours and six sixes in his 67-ball knock and put on 112 runs with skipper Eoin Morgan, who made 40, after being invited to bat first in Sharjah.

The England opener, who hit an unbeaten 71 in the team's previous win over Australia, surpassed his previous T20 best of 83 to amass 214 runs in the tournament.
