PAKISTAN TOUR OF ENGLAND, 2020 by Cricbuzz Staff • Last updated on ShareTweet Stokes scored a duck and 9 in the first Test against Pakistan. © AFP Ben Stokes, England’s ace all-rounder, will miss the remaining two Tests against Pakistan for family reasons. Stokes is to leave the UK for New Zealand later in the week and will miss the Tests at the Ageas Bowl, the ECB announced on Sunday (August 9), taking no further part in England’s Test-match summer. His father Ged, was hospitalised last December in South Africa during England’s tour, and has since been known to be recuperating in Christchurch, New Zealand. After a stellar series against West Indies last month, where he even stood in as skipper in the absence of Joe Root, Stokes has had a cold outing in the first Test against Pakistan with scores of 0 and 9. He, however, returned 2-11 in the second innings, playing his part in England’s eventual three-wicket win that gave them a 1-0 lead in the series. The second Test of the three-match series will be played at the Ageas Bowl from August 13. © Cricbuzz ShareTweet TAGS England Pakistan tour of England, 2020 Ben Stokes RELATED… Read full this story
