Jos Buttler to miss England’s T20 match against Australia
LONDON (AP) — Jos Buttler will miss England’s final Twenty20 against Australia on Tuesday after requesting time off to be with his family.
Buttler has been inside the team bubble for the last 10 weeks because he featured in all six test matches — against the West Indies and Pakistan — before joining up with the T20 squad.
Buttler's match-winning 77 not out on Sunday gave England an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series against Australia.
Buttler is set to link back up with the team ahead of the three-match one-day international series against Australia, which starts on Friday.
