"I am progressing well," Buttler told the media. "It would be nice to play but with the World Cup round the corner, we are taking a cautious approach.

"I am running a few drinks, getting the loads up, feeling good. I feel like if it was a World Cup game tomorrow I could play, but I am being a bit cautious and taking it a bit slowly. If I had to, I could play."

The World Cup takes place in Australia from October 16 to November 13.
