England Test vice-captain Ben Stokes revealed he was unwilling to make any plans for the summer until he had a few scans to assess the extent of a knee problem. The English all-rounder struggled with the problem in England’s recently concluded series in the West Indies, where they lost 1-0.
The 2022/23 County Championship is due to start on Thursday April 7, while England’s first Test match of the summer against New Zealand is scheduled for early June.
“At the moment, no training until I get those scans,” Stokes said during a talk on the Round the Wicket podcast. “Then we find out what’s going on and then hopefully we can work out a plan from there.”
England had a scorching winter, which included the Ashes’ 4-0 loss to Australia and a 1-0 loss to West Indies. With that, they lost four successive Test series and extended their winless run to nine games.
Expressing his thoughts on the results, Stokes insisted there were positives to be taken from their Caribbean tour, but admitted the players were perhaps guilty of “playing the situation by overplaying the game”. ‘man”.
“I said in the dressing room after the last game, unfortunately all that hard work we put in the first two games is going to be forgotten because of the way that last game went, and it’s like what the sport is going on,” Stokes added. .
“That’s what people focus on, but I think what we need to do is play the man a bit more rather than the situation.
“I think it’s something this whole group can take forward – break it down and just go ‘fine, it’s me against you rather than me against the whole situation of this whole game,’ he said. sign.
