Buttler insists poor World Cup campaign doesn't define his career
Jos Buttler has insisted that England's poor World Cup campaign "doesn't define me as a person or my whole career."
England's defence of their 2019 title was nothing short of abysmal as they finished seventh in the league standings, losing six games out of nine.
Butler, 33, did not make a single fifty and only averaged 15.33 in India.
And ahead of the ODI series against West Indies that begins on Sunday, the ODI captain intends to use the disappointment to fuel him moving forward.
He said: "I've got to use it as motivation and hunger to push myself and the team forward.
"Use it as a positive experience to go into the rest of my career.
"I still feel incredibly motivated and excited and it's nice to be around some of the younger guys who are desperate to do well and, as a more senior player, it gives you a lot of energy.
"We have had one bad tournament.
"We have been in a great place for a long time and you see the depth of talent of guys coming through and you want to help shape that period of white-ball cricket.
"Any time that you get challenged and get pushed back, it certainly lights a few fires and motivates you. I should be in an even better place moving forward than I have been.
"It's a huge disappointment but it doesn't define me as a person or my whole career. So just use it as something to make sure I look forward now and enjoy the challenges ahead."
England have named a new-look squad for the white-ball tour of the Caribbean.
The only six survivors of the World Cup are Buttler, Gus Atkinson, Harry Brook, Brydon Carse, Sam Curran and Liam Livingstone.
Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root and Mark Wood have been rested while Ben Stokes is having an operation on a long-term knee injury.
Ollie Pope, John Turner and Josh Tongue are all set to make their ODI debuts while Phil Salt, Will Jacks and Rehan Ahmed are also in the squad.
