Stokes ruled out of Lions clash

Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes has been ruled out of next week’s England Lions game against the West Indies due to the flare up of an existing back condition.

He will have anti inflammatory injections next week and will continue with back strengthening exercises. 

He will not be available for Durham’s LV= County Championship fixture against Somerset, which he was scheduled to miss in any case due to his inclusion in the Lions squad.
