Buttler, who led England to their second ICC T20 World Cup title, suffered a One-Day International (ODI) series white-wash against hosts Australia.
Despite the drubbing, Buttler claimed that the ODI world champions gained everything from the short series, which, according to many former cricketers, was meaningless.
Speaking to the BBC, Buttler revealed that playing Australia in their backyard will always be challenging, and the England side is not fussed about the results.
The wicketkeeper batter also spoke about the need for administrators to be more proactive to keep all three game formats relevant.
Here's what Buttler stated
"Any time England play Australia you want to put up good performances, but it's just been hard. I'm not fussed at all about the results, to be honest. We've got exactly what we wanted from the tour to Australia."
"The landscape of cricket has changed dramatically over the last few years, and we're in a different time. Lots of people are talking about how you keep bilateral cricket relevant and I think this series is a good example of how probably not to do it,"
England's next international assignment will be a three-match Test series against Pakistan scheduled next month.
