Jos Buttler targets England Test place

Jos Buttler says that he wants to become England's first-choice Test wicketkeeper in the future.

Lancashire batsman Jos Buttler has stated that his ambition is to become England's first-choice Test wicket-keeper.

The 23-year-old completed his move to the Red Rose county on Monday after choosing to leave home county Somerset at the end of last season.

Buttler, who has played 19 one-day matches and 25 Twenty20 internationals for England, is yet to make his Test debut.

"I'm an ambitious person and I want to play Test cricket. That's my ultimate aim," he told BBC North West Tonight.

"Realistically, I know I'm a little way off that, but that's why I'm here. I feel this club can aid me in doing that and getting me to my ultimate goals."

Lancashire finished top of County Championship Division Two last season.
