Craig Kieswetter is happy to bat anywhere he is asked to in the England ODI order.

England wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter has revealed that he is happy to bat anywhere in the one-day international order.

Kieswetter is England's first-choice wicketkeeper in ODIs and the 24-year-old, while happy to bat where needed, feels that he has an important role in the middle-lower order at number six after Eoin Morgan.

"I want to be playing games of cricket for England, I want to help them win," Sky Sports News quotes Kieswetter as saying. "If that means I bat six, open, or bat 10 or wherever, I'm prepared to do that because I like to see myself as a team player.

"Wherever Alastair Cook and Andy Flower want me to bat I'm prepared to do that.

"The role for me and Morgs at five and six is to try and finish off the last 15 overs, which we've identified as quite a big part of the game."

Kieswetter has played 38 ODIs for England.
