England all-rounder Ben Stokes’ injury absence extended

England to monitor injured Stokes ahead of one-dayers

"Stokes, who sustained the injury in the build-up to the NatWest Test match at Headingley against Pakistan, will be assessed later this week", read the European Central Bank statement.

Stokes, who sustained the injury during fielding practice ahead of the second Test at Headingley, will be assessed again later this week before it is decided how many games in the five-match ODI series against Australia he will miss.

As a result, Surrey's Tom Curran has been called in the squad as a replacement for injured Woakes, ESPNcricinfo reported. A similar injury ruled Woakes out of the final leg of the ODI series against South Africa in 2017.


England seamer Chris Woakes has joined Ben Stokes on the injury list for next weekend's one-day global against Scotland.

England's Ben Stokes' agonizing wait to face arch-rivals Australia has been postponed further after he was sidelined from the early part of the ODI series against Australia owing to a hamstring injury.

Eoin Morgan's squad take on Scotland in a one-off fixture on June 10 before facing Australia in a five-match series later the same month. The Joe Root-led side went on to win the game by an innings and 55 runs and levelled the two-match series 1-1.
