Ben Stokes is highly unlikely to be included in England’s squad for the Ashes this winter after undergoing a second surgery on his finger.

Stokes announced this summer that he was taking a break from cricket to focus on his mental health and to allow his finger to heal.

He suffered the injury to the index finger on his left hand in April while playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.

The all-rounder’s second surgery took place on Monday and saw him have two screws and scar tissue removed.

Speaking last month, England head coach Chris Silverwood says there is no rush for Ben Stokes to return from his indefinite break from cricket despite the T20 World Cup coming up

The England and Wales Cricket Board said Stokes will now undergo an “intensive period of rehabilitation for the next four weeks” with their medical team.

The 30-year-old is not targeting a specific return date from the injury or his break, with the Ashes series to begin on December 8 in Australia.

Stokes was not included in England’s squad for the T20 World Cup, which takes place in the United Arab Emirates in October and November.
