English batsman Jos Buttler has already left the bio-secure bubble and will miss out on the final T20I against Australia.
Just recently, English wicketkeeper and batsman Jos Buttler was named as the player of the match in England’s 2nd T20I against Australia in Southampton. There, he was able to score a 77 not out from 54 deliveries which led to England’s victory on the said match. However, he will no longer be a part of the next game as he opted to leave the bio-secure bubble to be with his family.
An official statement of the ECB read, ‘England batsman Jos Buttler left the bio-secure bubble yesterday evening following the team’s victory over Australia to be with his family. He will miss England’s final Vitality T20I against Australia on Tuesday at the Ageas Bowl’.
As Buttler had stayed in the bio-secure bubble for 10 weeks, he has chosen to be with his family first after the team’s victory. However, he will not be staying with his family for so long as he will have to return to the bio-secure bubble prior to their team’s ODI tour against Australia on Friday.
This has been confirmed in ECB’s statement which read, ‘Buttler, subject to testing, will return to the bio-secure bubble on Thursday ahead of the first ODI of the Royal London Series at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday’.
Most likely, the English opener will be replaced by Tom Banton if he gets promoted. Dawid Malan will most likely still stay at three as Banton may be replaced by Sam Billings. Still, there is uncertainty with regards to their lineup as Eoin Morgan’s availability remains unsure because of a finger injury he had incurred.
So far, the odds for the final T20I in the series are -108.7 for England and -121.95 for Australia. To get more updates about the odds of the game, visit Betwala.
