Buttler: came through the ranks at Somerset
Jos Buttler has committed his future to Somerset by signing a new three-year contract.
"I had a fantastic season in 2010 which far exceeded my own expectations so to be able to commit to another three years at Somerset is brilliant."
Jos Buttler Quotes of the week
Buttler, a product of the county's academy, made a big impression in 2010 as the Cidermen challenged for honours on all fronts before ending the season empty handed.
The 20-year-old, who has represented England at Under 19 level, stepped into the breach when first-choice wicketkeeper Craig Kieswetter was away on international duty.
And his batting form was so good that, when Kieswetter returned, Buttler kept his place in the side as a specialist batsman and played some superb innings, particularly in the one-day arena.
"I am very pleased to have signed a new three year contract," he told the county's official website.
"I had a fantastic season in 2010 which far exceeded my own expectations so to be able to commit to another three years at Somerset is brilliant.
"I was a bit more comfortable playing one-day cricket this season and during the winter I will be looking to develop my championship game so that next year I will be strong in all formats of the game."
