STROKES TO STAY OUT OF PAKISTAN TEST SERIES

England all-rounder Ben Strokes will not be playing rest of the test matches against Pakistan due to a calf injury he gained in the second innings of the second Test against Pakistan at Old Trafford. 

 

The all-rounder had undergone a scan last week which made clear that his damage to the calf is serious. He will be needing a full time rest for atleast six weeks. Strokes will totally miss the series against Pakistan and he is  replaced by Steven Finn for the test match at Edgbaston. 


Strokes, the 25-year-old Middlesex pacer bowled till the second ball of his sixth over to Younis Khan on Day 4 of the test at Old Trafford. The over was not completed as he had to return to the pavillion with physio.


The calf problem of Ben Strokes marked his second injury in last three month. He had injured his left knee in the first test match against Sri Lanka at Leeds and had to go for a surgery.


"Devastated about the injury especially with all the hard work put in by myself and others to get me back to fukk fitness. Another couple weeks of rehab and hoping to finish off what has been great summer so far for @ECB_cricket." Strokes posted in social media “Tweeter”.
