Notably, Stokes sustained an injury in the first Test of the Ashes series against Australia. It was fortunately not a major injury as the 30-year-old made a comeback and did brilliantly in the recently-concluded series against West Indies. However, he has now revealed that he hurt his knee during the series and his return to the game currently stands uncertain.

I think it was pretty obvious that I was struggling with my knee a bit out in the Caribbean. At the moment there is no training. So I will go and get the scans and then we can find out what’s going on, and then hopefully can make a plan from there,” Stokes said on Round the wicket podcast.

The all-rounder, who skipped IPL 2022, was all set to play county cricket of Durham but that seems to far-fetched now. He further opened up on how he was just getting back to his best when this injury happened, by saying “I want to say, yes. I felt like I was at somewhere near (my level best). But then, at the same time, I look back and go, If I didn’t have these knee worries then maybe things could have been different.”

With the county season approaching, there is a two-month break for the England national cricket team before they take on New Zealand for a three-match Test series. It will now be interesting to see if Stokes can recover in time for that series.
