England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler, who is currently taking part in the five-match Test series against India, is expecting his second child with wife Louise. The Rajasthan Royals cricketer will not be participating in the remainder of IPL 2021 scheduled to be held from September 19 to October 15 in the United Arab Emirates.

"Jos Buttler will not be part of the remainder of IPL 2021, as he and Louise are expecting a second child soon. We wish them well, and can't wait for the newest member of the #RoyalsFamily," Rajasthan Royals tweeted earlier. Jos Buttler also revealed that he may skip the Ashes tour against Australia due to Covid-19. A couple of other England players from Rajasthan Royals, including Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, are currently taking a break from cricket as well. "I've sacrificed a lot for cricket and my wife and family have sacrificed a lot. Covid is incredibly challenging for everyone and Australia has a very strict policy in how they've tried to deal with it," Buttler was quoted as saying.

"Until we get more information about what it (the Australian tour) might look like, it's impossible to know what decision you're making. One of the challenges is working out where the line is, where you say I can't do that. You have to be open to saying no. It would be incredibly disappointing if some players feel like they can't do it," he added
