Jos Buttler Deemed Fit To Play Against Windies

Buttler is fit to play in their upcoming match against West Indies

England head coach Trevor Bayliss said that wicketkeeper Jos Buttler will be fit to play in their upcoming match against West Indies. This comes after Buttler suffered a hip injury during their team’s previous match against Bangladesh, where they won by 36 runs.

Bayliss continued that Buttler will join his team’s net session at Hampshire Bowl on Wednesday. 

“Yes, he’s fine. He’ll be taking part in today’s practice fully,” said Bayliss. “It was a little bit precautionary the other day. He said he could have kept, but he wasn’t really sure if he would be able to run after a high catch.

When Bayliss was asked if Buttler will play as a specialist batsman to lighten his load in matches, the coach said that he will make that decision soon.

“I haven’t really thought about it. We’ll make that decision in the next day or so,” stated Bayliss. “We’ll see how he pulls up and how he performs at practice. I’m expecting him to play a full part.”

England will play against West Indies tomorrow at Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. The home team currently has odds of -1429 to win the game while Windies have +820 odds.
