The wicket-keeper batsman suffered the injury while hitting a six against Bangladesh on Saturday. Jonny Bairstow replaced him behind the stumps in that game. 

However, a team spokesperson of the England Cricket Team has said that Buttler is responding well to treatment and should resume training by Wednesday. “He will be reassessed later this week,” he further added.

Meanwhile, from West Indies, coach Floyd Reifer stated that Andre Russell will be fit to face England after he was not included in the side that faced South Africa on Monday. The game was washed out. 

“The game against England is a big game for us and we’re looking forward to that … so we’re wrapping him in cotton wool.”
