The Ashes 2021-22: Ben Stokes suffers an injury scare ahead of 1st Test

The return of Ben Stokes for the Ashes series against Australia has been one of the most talked-about topics in English cricket. After taking a sabbatical to focus on his mental health, Stokes will return to competitive cricket. The all-rounder, however, injured his arm while training on November 28, 2021, and was treated by a doctor and physiotherapist. And, according to Ashley Giles, Director of Cricket, Stokes is doing well and having a nice time.

Giles acknowledged that Stokes has not played much cricket recently and said England will have to deal with the 30-year-old in a methodical manner, adding that England skipper Joe Root will be pleased to have him in the team. “Ben seems to be doing well, and it’s fantastic to have him here.” I’m sure Joe Root will be delighted to have him back in the team. We still have to be cautious with him because he hasn’t played much cricket recently, and going back to that preparation phase, it’s not ideal for anyone, but especially for those who haven’t played much cricket. As a result, we’ll just keep building him up,” Ashley Giles told The Telegraph.

Ben Stokes must be handled with care: Giles, Ashley. Ashley Giles also believes England should be cautious with Ben Stokes because he hasn’t played much cricket. Stokes will be ready to go whenever he is totally healthy, according to Giles. “I’m optimistic.” We just have to be cautious with Ben, like we would with anyone else who hasn’t had much experience with cricket. If he’s ready to go, he’ll be a difficult man to keep back,” Ashley Giles said. The first Ashes Test between Australia and England will take place at The Gabba on December 8, 2021.
