Jos Buttler to miss third T20I against Australia

Jos Buttler, who struck a match-winning 77* in the second T20I between England and Australia, will not be available for the final match of the series due to personal reasons.

Buttler left the bio-secure bubble following England six-wicket victory to be with his family, but England are hopeful he will be able to rejoin the squad in time ahead of the first ODI between the sides, which will be played on 11 September.

The wicket-keeper's absence may offer another chance at the top of the order for Tom Banton, who has been batting at No.4 rather than his preferred opening spot. Sam Billings looks the likely candidate to come into the playing XI.

England lead the series 2-0 and are well-placed to overtake Australia in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings, with the winner of the final match set to claim the No.1 spot.
