Another injury concern for Ben Stokes ahead of busy English summer

England all-rounder Ben Stokes is battling another injury concern, with the 30-year-old cricketer saying he is set to undergo a scan after experiencing knee pain during the Caribbean tour.

The England Test team, led by Joe Root, recently lost the three-match series in the West Indies, with the hosts winning the last game in Grenada by 10 wickets. Stokes bowled 99 overs in the series.

A report in Dailymail.co.uk said on Wednesday that Stokes had said in his podcast that he could not make any plans until the seriousness of the injury was revealed.

England are in for a busy summer, which will see them host a rescheduled fifth Test against India, along with a three-Test series against New Zealand and South Africa, and Stokes’ fitness will be the key to the team’s success.

The report said that Stokes will undergo a knee scan.

“I had a knee problem in the Caribbean, I’m getting it scanned, so can’t make a plan until we know what’s going on,” Stokes said.

The England vice-captain also suffered a side strain during the Ashes and was not expected to bowl in the opening Test against the West Indies, but ended up sending 99 overs in three Tests, the highest for any English pacer. Most by the bowler.

To stay fit for the busy season ahead, Stokes had opted out of the Indian Premier League mega auction in the hopes of playing county cricket for Durham. England’s season starts on June 2 against New Zealand at Lord’s.
