Stokes has made great strides in his battle with mental health problems over the last year
According to the Telegraph, Stokes has made great strides in his battle with mental health problems over the last year. England, on the other hand, is well aware of the difficulties they would encounter in Australia, where they will be subjected to a lengthy quarantine period. Additionally, the bio-bubble weariness brought on by the lengthy quarantine time has led players such as Jos Butler and Jonny Bairstow to withdraw from the IPL. In this respect, the selection of Ben Stokes by the England Cricket Board seems to be a smart choice.
The all-rounder with a seam bowling style will almost certainly make a return when England travels to the West Indies early next year. The two teams are set to face off against the Windies in five Twenty20 Internationals and three Tests.
