I don't think they'll be looking outside of Buttler, Bairstow and Foakes any time soon.

Foakes had a poor season with the bat last year. Buttler was carried by the hype of the World Cup victory.

Butler receiving a lot of backing from the England coaches in the press today.
Might just be words for his and the rest of the teams benefit.

Could also mean Butler may  be given more time to make an impact after a good 2018.

Interesting to see which way they go for the SL tour. Speculation of course but they may be thinking if Foakes goes to Sri Lanka and then we revert back to a batsman keeper, what would the point be for one tour to do that?

I think Foakes is the missing link in this new side that would improve it....but since Gilchrist I suppose things have changed for that role.

Butler also lost the vice captaincy for no real reason other than to give it back to Stokes far as I can see....its 50/50 call I think from the selectors, Butler maybe might get a bit longer....
