Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has been appointed captain of the England Men's white-ball teams by the England and Wales Cricket Board on Thursday.

He succeeds Eoin Morgan, who retired from international cricket earlier this week.

Buttler has been part of England's white-ball teams for over a decade. He played his first T2OI game in 2011 and made his ODI debut a year later.

The wicketkeeper-batsman has been an integral part of the set-up, having been vice-captain since 2015 and has led the team 14 times previously (nine ODIs and five T20Is).

He has represented England 151 times in ODIs scoring 4120 runs at an average of 41.20, including 10 hundreds.

In T20 internationals, he has won 88 caps scoring 2140 runs with an average of 34.51.
