Buttler could now face a battle to be fit for England’s white-ball tour of Pakistan, which begins next month.

England are touring Pakistan in September for the first time in 17 years and are set to play seven T20Is across September and October.

England pulled out of their Pakistan tour last year soon after New Zealand had abandoned their tour of the country over security concerns.

Beginning on September 20, England will play seven Twenty20 matches in Karachi and Lahore in the first leg of their tour, all of which will be shown live on Sky Sports.

After the T20 World Cup in Australia, England will return to play three Tests in December.
