England’s Test Cricket team captain Ben Stokes has taken back his announcement of retiring from ODIs to defend the title of World Cup champions. He will also play in the upcoming home series against New Zealand.
He announced his retirement from ODI during the series against South Africa last year.
As Ben Stokes takes back his retirement, the England Cricket team selection panel announced the squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand starting from August 30.
Ben Stokes played a magnificent role in the last World Cup in 2019. He scored an unbeaten 84 runs to pull the team to the super over where Jofra Archer defended against New Zealand.
“The return of Ben Stokes only adds to that quality with his match-winning ability and leadership. I am certain that every fan will enjoy seeing him back in an England ODI shirt again,” England Men’s National Selector, Luke Wright said.
