Injured Jos Buttler ‘progressing well’ ahead of T20 World Cup | Cricket News

England captain Jos Buttler says he is making good progress in his recovery from a calf injury but will not rush his return until the Twenty20 World Cup, which starts in just over two weeks.
The 32-year-old, who hasn’t played since August 18 after picking up an injury playing in The Hundred, is currently with the England squad in Pakistan watching the team from the touchline in their seven-game T20 series.
“I’m making good progress,” Buttler told Sky Sports. “It would be nice to play, but with the World Cup coming up, we are taking a cautious approach.
“I’m having a few drinks, refueling, feeling good. I feel like if it was a World Cup game tomorrow I could play, but I’m a bit cautious and I’m going. a bit slow. If I had to, I could play.”
The World Cup takes place in Australia from October 16 to November 13.
