The Ashes 2021-22: Jos Buttler heading back to England after breaking finger at SCG

England’s titanic effort to draw the SCG Test has come at some cost, with Jos Buttler’s Ashes series over after he suffered a broken finger and others battling injury.

Buttler was hurt keeping on day two of the fourth Test when a ball that stayed low struck him on a less-protected area of the glove.

The ‘keeper managed to bat in both of England’s innings, but did not take to the field to keep in Australia’s second dig as Ollie Pope took the gloves.

Buttler will head home immediately as England sweat on his availability for a future tour of West Indies.

But the visitors were thankful for Buttler’s effort with the bat in the second innings, as he used up 38 balls before they finished the match nine wickets down.
