Cricket news - We want to play a part in exciting time for English cricket - Buttler

Considering a gruelling schedule, Jos Buttler is conscious that he needs to get away from the game when he can to keep body and mind fresh

Jos Buttler was England's best player in all formats in the past year, with the successful retrieval of the Test team, using his position as England's most destructive-and-white-ball bat, and if England are to deliver on their two most important goals this year - the football world Cup and ashes while the home-summer - Buttler is likely to be in the foreground.

His virgin Test century against India at Trent Bridge, was his arrival in the five-day format after a fall in 2015, and he also played a number of vital innings in Sri Lanka at the end of last year. Whether Buttler should have been recalled earlier, a moot point, but his return to England is now the Test site coincided with an upturn in the team, the results, run the search, in order to continue in the three-match series against West Indies beginning in Barbados in January 23.

It is the first task of the who knows what to Buttler, could be a very special year. "We feel happy to be around this time to come when these kinds of things, because it is a huge opportunity, and we all want to play a role in an exciting time for English cricket," he said. "It is a big year, but for us it is a case of concentrating on the here and now, because we don't want to get too far from us. We are well aware of how quickly things can change, and cricket and you can come unstuck.

"We are all in a very good position to possibly play a role in a great period for England cricket. They are all very romantic ideas, but the final product comes from the hard work over the years and to do some good stuff now."

Buttler arrived in the Caribbean directly from Australia, where he spent the last couple of weeks to play for Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash with a Test-captain Joe Root. After the Test and ODI series in the West Indies squad for the T20I matches, has not named yet, and Buttler could be locked - the 28-year-old will head to accede to India, Rajasthan Royals, for a guest game in the IPL. He will then return to England ahead of the ODI series against Pakistan, the team start the final preparation for the world Cup in as the favorites.

Although Buttler is one of the strongest members of the English team, it's a murderous schedule and he is aware that he needs to get away from the game, if he can, the mind and body fresh. "It's a huge year and we have to be fresh and excited on the way to the big events," he said. "There are a lot of cricket to come, and one of the things that the two captains (Joe Root and Eoin Morgan), and management have done, according to the player, this is really important.

"We talked about it, about this year's massive for the game. We don't want to be human to get tired but there is a fine balance between too much and too little. We only have a short career and you want to play as much as you can. There are amazing opportunities around the world, but you have to balance your time well, and it is important for me to have time away from the game. It is a discussion for everyone is so open and honest and trying to find the best solutions."

England begin their preparations for the test series with a two-day, 12-a-side affair against West Indies Cricket XI at Kensington Oval, starting on Tuesday (15. January). You then have another two-day to raise game against the same opponent in the same place, with whom, your game for an important series. Following the comprehensive 3-0 defeat of Sri Lanka before Christmas, to see the victory over West Indies, the head in this summer, the ashes, in decent obesity, diabetes.

One aspect, of the English preparation, which is drawn attention to, play football in their warm-ups following comments last week from Ashley Giles, the new Director, England Cricket, that he was to play football, before a day of play in terms of protection against injury. Although the team is preparing a case for the captain and coach, it seems that the England football enjoyed a lot of the players could soon be at an end.

"It's been a fun part of our warm-ups for a while, and I really love football, but I do not understand his point of view, as it will probably be a lot of sense for us to warm up to the game," added Buttler. "If his final decision, that was it. I don't think the players would be too much of a fuss."
