Ben Stokes goes under the knife again, doubtful starter for Ashes

The
second
surgery
is
likely
to
rule
him
out
of
the
forthcoming
Ashes
series
against
Australia,
according
to
reports
appearing
in
British
media.

The
30-year-old
star
has
been
on
indefinite
leave
since
pulling
out
of
the
home
Test
series
against
India.

“Leeds
based
consultant
Doug
Campbell,
who
also
performed
the
first
surgery
back
in
April,
took
the
screws
out
of
Stokes’ healed
finger
on
Monday
and
resolved
the
scar
tissue
that
had
been
causing
the
agonising
pain
around
his
tendons
and
ligaments,”

Daily
Mirror

tabloid
reported.

The
report
said
that
the
broken
finger
will
now
be
far
better
and
Stokes
may
be
able
to
play
without
chronic
pain
in
future.

But
he
is
not
expected
to
return
anytime
soon.
The
Ashes
gets
underway
in
December.

agree

tour
Australia
for
Ashes:
report

On
Wednesday
(October
6),
Stokes
posted
a
photo
on
his
Instagram
along
with
his
wife
Clare
with
his
left
index
finger
bandaged.

Stokes
attempted
a
return
to
action
this
summer,
playing
for
Durham
in
the
T20
Blast
in
June
and
was
also
picked
for
the
ODI
series
against
Pakistan
in
July.

The
series
was
marred
by
England’s
first
squad
forced
into
isolation
following
a
coronavirus
(COVID-19)
outbreak.

Stokes
led
a
second-string
side
that
featured
nine
uncapped
players,
and
guided
England
to
a
3-0
series
win.

However,
he
required
a
painkilling
injection
throughout
the
series.
He
has
not
played
in
any
form
of
cricket
since
July
26.

Stokes
did
not
feature
in
the
IPL
2021
which
resumed
in
the
UAE
on
September
19
and
also
subsequently
was
not
available
for
selection
for
the
upcoming
ICC
T20
World
Cup
in
the
UAE.
