Ben Stokes will not play in Second Test against India
Written by Abhishek Lohia

A close defeat to Team India in the first Test broke the heart of many Indian fans. India’s batsmen could not achieve this target of 194 runs. The entire team was already out at 162. If Virat Kohli is left out, then no batsman is successful. England’s bowlers did a great job, especially Sam Curran and Ben Stokes did the same. These two players in the second innings wrote the script of England’s victory. The second Test match between Team India and England starts on 9th in Lord’s. But before that Team India has received a great news. Ben Stokes, who gave the pain of losing in the first Test, will not be able to play in the second Test.

The reason is a case running on them. Ben Stokes was involved in a dispute in Bristol last November. After that, these cases are running on them. For this reason, he was unable to return to his team for a long time. There is a hearing in the court on Monday 6th August.

Ben Stokes broke the middle of Team India by taking four wickets in the second innings. Especially in the over where he had earlier convinced Virat Kohli and later Mohammed Shami to win the team’s victory. After that, he dismissed Hardik Pandya as the last wicket. He took 4 wickets in the innings and help England to take an early lead in the five test matches series.

Now, Ben Stokes is being replaced by Chris Woakes in the English team. Chris Woakes was out of the team due to injuries, but team management is confident that he will be fit to play before the second Test. England’s captain Joe Root says he will return after the matter. We will welcome him again at that time. He will appear again in England’s shirt as soon as possible.
