First-team opportunity:

When Craig Kieswetter was called up into the England one-day side in 2010, Buttler was given the chance of a prolonged run in Somerset's first team. Brian Rose, Somerset's Director of Cricket, chose not to bring in an experienced keeper to deputise, explaining that Kieswetter had been in a similar position three years earlier, and that he had good reports of Buttler's ability.[18] In his first match of the 2010 season, Buttler remained 22 not out at the close of Somerset's innings, posting his first runs in List A cricket, and he followed this up with two catches to help Somerset beat Glamorgan in their opening Clydesdale Bank 40 fixture.[19] He made his maiden first-class century in his fourth County Championship match, scoring 144 runs in an innings characterised by "dogged determination and decent range of shots" In his next match, he scored his debut List A half-century against Sussex. Buttler joined James Hildreth at the crease with Somerset at 109/4, requiring 183 more runs to win off 129 balls. The pair put on a partnership of 158 runs "to turn the game on its head", with Buttler making 69 in 53 ballsIn doing so, they set a new record partnership for the fifth-wicket against Sussex.[22] His continued batting form, which also saw him make scores of 52 and 31* in a County Championship match against Yorkshire,saw him retain his place in the Somerset team upon Kieswetter's returnButtler was named man of the match in Somerset's Friends Provident T20 semi-final victory over Nottinghamshire at the Rose Bowl, hitting an unbeaten 55 off 23 balls in a partnership of 75 with Kieron Pollard.

On 30 September 2013, Lancashire County Cricket Club announced they had signed Buttler after he left Somerset...
