'Yeah, I'd like to (play and lead in the Caribbean),' said Buttler, after England's 160-run win against the Netherlands.
'I know Rob Key arrives in India on Wednesday so we can have some good conversations with him and the coach and everyone, and make a plan for that tour but yeah, I'd like to,' Buttler added.

Alongside England white-ball coach Matthew Mott, the pair will meet Key, England's managing director of men's cricket, in Kolkata this week, where England finish their World Cup campaign against Pakistan on Saturday.
