Ben Stokes is currently recovering from the finger injury he picked up at the Indian Premier League 2021. He recently returned to training after undergoing surgery in April. Stokes will likely be featuring for Durham in the T20 Blast in July before facing India in the five-match Test series.
Later today, England kick start their summer with two-match Test series against New Zealand at Lord’s Cricket ground. England will give chances to few fresh faces in this series as they are not rushing the Test regulars who have recently returned from IPL.
