Jos Buttler to miss third T20I after leaving biosecure bubble to meet family

Jos Buttler will be unavailable for England's final T20I against Australia at Southampton on Tuesday after leaving the bio-secure bubble to spend time with his family.

The star wicketkeeper-batsman had left the bio-secure environment at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday evening following his team's emphatic win over the tourists in the second T20I.

Buttler was the chief protagonist in England's blazing run-chase as he steered his side across the finishing line with a splendid contribution of 77 not out.

The 29-year-old has been in fine touch throughout England's action-packed cricketing summer, managing to extend his special red-ball form into the T20Is.

Taking on the T20 opening role with great finesse, Buttler has slammed 121 runs over the two games at an impressive strike rate of 145.78.

Subject to coronavirus testing, Buttler will be able to return to the bio-secure bubble and join England's squad on Thursday before the first ODI at Old Trafford the following day.

Buttler's absence may prompt the team management to once again promote Tom Banton to the top of the order, where the youngster experienced a successful run during the Pakistan T20Is.
