Dubai. Ben Stokes has returned to the England squad for the Ashes series starting December. Many former cricketers and Australian players have congratulated him for his return. Meanwhile, Australia batsman Steve Smith on Wednesday heaped praise on England all-rounder Ben Stokes, saying it is a good thing for him to return to the England team.
Stokes was away from cricket for several months due to his mental health and finger injury. But recently the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced that England all-rounder Ben Stokes has been selected in the squad for the entire Ashes series, which will be played in the first Test at the Gabba, Australia from 8 December.
“It’s always good to play in front of good players,” Smith said on the sports and internet network (Sen 1170 Drive) on Wednesday.
With Stokes coming, the England team will be very strong. He said that Stokes’ decision to distance himself from cricket due to injury and other problems was a good one. This will benefit them.
