Cricket: Stokes won’t play for defending champion England in T20 World Cup

# Cricket: England’s Test captain, Ben Stokes, has made himself unavailable for the T20 World Cup starting in the West Indies and America in June. He is currently focusing on building his bowling fitness to be able to play an allrounder role in all formats. Stokes says missing the World Cup and the Indian Premier League will help him achieve this goal. He underwent knee surgery recently and bowled just five overs during the Test series against India. England won the previous World Cup in Australia in 2022.
