Jos Buttler to miss final T20I against Australia for family reasons


Southampton: England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler will miss the final T20I of the three-match series against Australia due to family reasons.

“England batsman Jos Buttler left the bio-secure bubble yesterday evening following the team’s victory over Australia to be with his family,” the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement.

Subject to the testing, he will return to the bio-secure bubble on Thursday ahead of the first ODI at Old Trafford on Friday.

It must be noted that England lead the T20 series 2-0 after Buttler played a starring role in their victory in the second match on Sunday.
