Buttler excited by Moores link-up

Jos Buttler tells BBC North West Tonight that the chance to work alongside head coach Peter Moores, a former county wicketkeeper with Sussex and Worcestershire, persuaded him to turn down interest from other counties and join Lancashire.

The 23-year-old decided to leave home county Somerset and with the promise of more opportunities behind the stumps at Old Trafford.

Buttler was not included in England's squad for the upcoming Ashes tour of Australia but hopes his move to Lancashire will increase his chances of gaining Test recognition in the future.
