Ahead of a test against Ireland and an Ashes series, Ben Stokes is confident that he can rediscover the form and conditioning that helped him to a year of wonders with England in 2019. 

Ben Stokes to play all matches for England this summer  

England captain Ben Stokes recently stated that he plans to play every Test this summer. Despite doubts about his ability to bowl in the forthcoming Ashes series due to long-standing knee injuries. 

“Unless I can’t walk, I’ll be on the field,” Stokes said with a smile the day before England begin their one-off Test against Ireland, which serves as a warmup for the five-match Ashes series against Australia. 

England captain Ben Stokes hopes to play a full role with the bat and ball. As his team begins their Ashes preparations with a four-day Test against Ireland on Thursday. 

Ben Stokes Knee Injury 

Stokes’ knee injury has cast question on his ability to play as all-rounder, and it flared up during the drawn test series in New Zealand in February. 

Stokes bowled only nine overs in the two tests against New Zealand. But he firmly intends to be part of England’s attack in Australia. 

The Southpaw only played twice for Chennai Super Kings in the recently concluded Indian Premier League. After suffering knee injuries during the February tour of New Zealand.

However, Stokes, 31, said his knee is much better than it was in New Zealand. That he will play as an all-rounder for England against Ireland at Lord’s and then Australia. 

“My knee is in a much better place than it was in Wellington,” said Stokes while speaking to reporters at pre-match conference. 

“I have got myself into a place where I feel like I am back at 2019, 2020 with my body. Hopefully I can turn up every day and bowl like I was able to do before this little niggle,” he said. “We know what the problem is and it’s about managing it with workload and the medical team, just to get through it.” 

England is set to play a four-day test match against Thursday, followed by the much-anticipated Ashes, starting June 16.
