CRICKET: Lancashire confirm signing of Jos Buttler
5:38pm Monday 30th September 2013 in Sport
LANCASHIRE have announced the signing of Somerset favourite Jos Buttler.
The move had been widely expected after England's limited-overs wicketkeeper-batsman announced last week his decision to leave the County Ground to pursue more opportunities as a keeper.
Although he has established himself for England in ODI and T20 cricket, Buttler's progress with the gloves was being hindered by the presence of Craig Kieswetter.
The move will also give Buttler the chance to work with former England coach, Peter Moores, who was responsible for guiding Matt Prior, England's Test wicketkeeper, in the early stages of his career at Sussex.
