SOUTHAMPTON: Jos Buttler, for family reasons will miss England’s final Twenty20 International versus Australia on Tuesday. He requested time off to be with his family.
He got featured in all six Test matches throughout the English summer before responding the white-ball side for the ongoing series. He has been the part of the bubble team for the last 10 weeks.
It is understood that the head coach Chris Silverwood and loomed captain Eoin Morgan a 29-year-old after his match-winning 77 not out gave the hosts an unassailable 2-0 lead at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday and they granted his release.
It was reveal on last month that Jos Buttler’s father had been taken to hospital the day before his son Jos Buttler’s joined Chris Woakes in a game-changing partnership that gave England victory in the first Test against Pakistan.
Buttler gave a current plan to the team is that to link back up with the team ahead of the three-match One-day International series against the Australians, which will start on Friday at Old Trafford in Manchester.
Jos Buttler’s absence from the team will open the closed door for one of the standby players to take a forward step.
As a replacement Sam Billings could be seen as a batsman /wicket-keeper but it is more expected that Jonny Bairstow will regain the gloves and leave Billings behind to compete with Liam Livingstone and Joe Denly for a fluttering slot. In the meantime, the competition for places in the Twenty20 side had been ‘driving him’ said Buttler.
Team England has set a modest target of 158 after a fine performance by their bout and saw the Buttler end the match in style with seven balls to spare when he drove leg-spinner Adam Zampa for a huge straight six.
This arrangement has seen England review a few multi-design stars, including Buttler and individual 50-over World Cup champs Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, after they had handled separate red and white-ball crews in a season dominated by the Covid.
Tom Banton, who played on Sunday, opened during the drawn T20 crusade against Pakistan after Buttler was not chosen for that arrangement the still harmed Jason Roy passed up a great opportunity with a side issue.
Buttler after compiling his highest T20 International score said, “When you play against Australia it gives you a lot of determination to play well and I think the competition for places in the side has really been driving me as well.”
He also said,
“When you miss out, you feel that pressure so to come back in you feel like you have to play well,” added Buttler, who faced 54 balls, including eight fours and two sixes.
While establishment star Buttler said he would be bat anyplace in England’s structure, he clarified his inclination when gotten some information about opening at the following year’s T20 World Cup in India.
“It probably is my favoured position to bat in T20 cricket. I’ve had most of my success at the top and I think that is natural, if you bat in the top three in T20 cricket,” said Buttler.
