England’s new white-ball captain Jos Buttler will lead his team in another series as they face South Africa in a One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 series before Ben Stokes takes over the to lead England in a three match Test series later in the summer

The first ODI match comes just days after the conclusion of a 2-1 loss to India in Buttler’s first series in charge.

England suffered a first match disaster as they were beaten by 10 wickets for the first time ever on home soil.

Some pride was recovered in their second fixture as Reece Topley starred with the ball, producing record-breaking figures of 6-24 as he rattled India down to just 146.

However, this triumph was short-lived as India once again shone to beat England by five wickets in the third and final match to take the series.

England do not now have long to prepare for their next series which comes against South Africa, but will hope to take lessons from their most recent opponents in order to reverse their current white-ball form.
