Stokes has only played four Tests in Australia, all of which came during the 2013-14 Ashes series
Because of the ambiguity surrounding whether or not visiting tourists would be able to bring their families to Australia, important players may decide to skip the series. Their decision on whether to participate in the Ashes Tour will be made available to them at the end of this month, according to The Telegraph newspaper. Their Ashes team will be revealed in early October, with the match taking place in England.
Stokes has only played four Tests in Australia, all of which came during the 2013-14 Ashes series. He has not played a one-day international in the country. That was seven years ago, and things have undoubtedly altered since then. Despite hitting a century in the third Test against Australia in Perth, the tourists were beaten by a comprehensive 5-0 scoreline on that occasion. The great all-rounder was forced to miss the 2017-18 season as a result of the repercussions from a street brawl.
