England recall Buttler for first Pakistan Test

Buttler is currently playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the Twenty20 IPL, where his last three scores have been 95, 94 and 81

London: England recalled batsman in a 12-man squad announced on Tuesday for the first Test against Pakistan which starts at Lord’s ground on 24 May. Buttler is currently playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the Twenty20 IPL, where his last three scores have been 95, 94 and 81.
Buttler, widely regarded as one of the most talented English batsmen of his generation, last played Test when he batted down the order.
The 27-year-old has had a frustrating 18-match career in Test cricket, with his last appearance in the format against India at Chennai in December 2016.

 

Having made an impact at international level as a wicket-keeper/batsman, Buttler has been selected for the first of a two-Test series against Pakistan purely as a batsman.

But he has not played first-class for Lancashire, his English county, since the end of last season.

The selection panel feels that this is the perfect moment to reintroduce Jos to Test cricket, where he has already enjoyed some success, including a stint playing as a specialist batsman at number seven.

“Jos is playing with great confidence and flair, and he will bring unique qualities to the Test team.”

is an outstanding talent, who is already a central part of England’s white ball teams,” said Smith in an England and Wales Board statement.

 In the first England squad since former Test batsman Ed Smith took over as national selector, Somerset off-spinner Dom Bess was given a first call-up.

But, after England’s tour series losses in Australia and New Zealand, top-order batsman James Vince was dropped after a run of low scores at Test level despite the Hampshire batsman making an unbeaten 201 against Somerset on Monday.

Jonny Bairstow, who succeeded Buttler as England’s Test keeper, has retained his place behind the stumps having become a mainstay of Joe Root’s side with both bat and gloves.

Bess, 20, has played just 16 first-class matches. But he starred for MCC in the Champion County match against Essex in March where he took eight wickets in the match and scored a in a victory over the county Champions in Barbados.

England squad: Joe Root (Yorkshire, capt), James Anderson (Lancashire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire, wkt), Dom Bess (Somerset), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Alastair Cook (Essex), Dawid Malan (Middlesex),Ben Stokes (Durham), Mark Stoneman (Surrey), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Mark Wood (Durham).
