All-rounder Ben Stokes has been added to the England Test squad for the Ashes tour of Australia.

Stokes, who has been given the all-clear by his consultant and the ECB medical team to resume training following his second operation on a fractured left index finger, will depart with the Test specialists and the Lions on 4 November. 


The 30-year-old is ready to return to competitive cricket following his break from the game at the end of July to prioritise his mental wellbeing. 

“I had a break to prioritise my mental wellbeing and I got my finger sorted,” said Stokes.

“I am looking forward to seeing my mates and being on the field with them. I’m ready for Australia.”

The first test match of the Ashes will start from 8th December.
