England captain Jos Buttler will miss the third T20I against Pakistan at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Buttler has left the Three Lions squad ahead of the impending birth of his second child ahead of match three in the four-game series on May 28. After the opening game was called off due to rain, England convincingly won the second thanks to Buttler's incredible knock in Birmingham. 

Batting first, the Three Lions posted a competitive 183-run total on the back Buttler smashed a 51-ball 84 with eight fours and three sixes. The Lancashire star was deemed the Player of the Match as England registered a 23-run victory. Replacing Buttler, vice-captain Moeen Ali will lead the side. 

Nothing will change too much:  Ali on replacing Buttler

Speaking about this change in leadership, Ali, last week, said, "Obviously if it happens, then it's a great honour - as it always is. I'll be fine. Nothing will change too much: it's just taking over from what he's doing and then when he comes back, he takes over."

"Hopefully, the baby comes at the right time where he doesn't miss too many games. For me, it's just whatever will happen, will happen. [Deputising] is not really difficult, to be honest with you, because we speak often, me and Jos. We talk about other things, the team, and all that. We're on the same page anyway."
