Jos Buttler admits that replacing his friend and county colleague Craig Kieswetter in the England side has been awkward, but he intends to make the most of the opportunity.

Buttler was called up in place of Kieswetter for the fourth one-day international in Mohali after a string of poor performances from the first-choice wicketkeeper.

"It is a bit tricky, because Craig and I are good friends and have been for a number of years. I actually made my Somerset debut because Craig was away with England." Buttler said. "I don't think this will change that; this is professional sport and there's only 11 spaces in the England side that a lot of people want."
