The England team may have leveled the Test series against India, but due to the good news of a player, the team is going to be shocked. Yes, England team’s wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler will not be available in the last two matches of the series against India. Not only this, he has decided to withdraw his name from the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL as well as the Ashes series.
Jos Buttler admitted last week that he would not be available for next month’s match at Old Trafford in Manchester as his wife is about to give birth to their second child, the Daily Mail reported. In such a situation, Butler is going on paternity leave. This is the reason why they will miss the next two matches, which will be officially announced by the ECB soon.
“It will be clear in the next few days. Hopefully we can get some clarity on that and as soon as it’s final. If so, then that information may reach you. I can’t honestly tell you in any way at this time. I don’t want to say a thing and it didn’t turn out to be true.”Asked about Jos Buttler’s availability this week, England captain Joe Root said
The move could signal the end of Butler’s Test career, with last week admitting he could miss this winter’s Ashes series in Australia due to uncertainty over whether the players’ families will be able to travel to Australia. 10 England players are considering sitting out of the tour, yet Buttler is the only person to publicly state his position. He has said that my family and I have sacrificed a lot for cricket.
