Sydney: England captain Joe Root has confirmed that wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler will return to his home country with an injury. The fourth Test of the Ashes was a draw between the two teams. Butler injured his hand while keeping wickets and was replaced by Sam Billings in the England team as cover. At the same time, now he will debut in the fifth Test. Earlier too, while keeping in the first innings, Ollie Pope had kept wickets in the second innings due to a fracture in the finger of Butler’s left hand.
