England All-Rounder Ben Stokes could Miss Ashes after Finger Operation

England and Wales Cricket Board has announced that All-Rounder Ben Stokes could miss the Ashes series in Australia after undergoing another operation on his injured finger.

He has not been playing since July when announced he was taking a break to focus on his mental wellbeing and to rest his left index finger.

“Ben Stokes has undergone a second operation on Monday 4 October to address ongoing issues with the finger that he injured in the IPL (Indian Premier League) in April,” the ECB said in a statement.

“Stokes had two screws and scar tissue removed from the index finger of his left hand. He will now undergo an intensive period of rehabilitation for the next four weeks under the supervision of the ECB’s medical team,” it added.

The ECB is meeting this week to decide whether the Ashes can go ahead, with reports suggesting there have been positive talks with Cricket Australia.

Stokes burnished his reputation as England’s talisman during the 2019 Ashes. When his unbeaten 135 helped England chase a record fourth-innings target of 359 at Headingley with one wicket remaining.
