A day after winning series vs Proteas, Stokes sets sights on regaining the Ashes

London, Sep 13 (IANS) A day in the wake of fixing the Test series win against South Africa, England captain Ben Stokes has focused on recovering the Ashes the following summer and getting payback for the 0-4 whipping Down Under recently.

Britain’s newly discovered certainty comes from the way that they have won six of the seven Tests they have played this season beginning with the 3-0 decisive victory against New Zealand, trailed by triumph in the rescheduled fifth Test against India and afterward the 2-1 series triumph against the Proteas.

Australia have held the urn starting around 2017-18 yet Stokes is ‘amped up for’ England planning to recover the Ashes the following summer. Notwithstanding, before that, England should battle with the difficult three-Test visit through Pakistan in December.

“At the point when you realize you have an Ashes coming up very soon, it’s hard not to take a gander at it, particularly with how the last Ashes trip went,” Stokes was cited as saying by Daily Mail. “I’m energized by the Ashes, particularly with the manner in which we are playing.”

Gotten some information about the possibilities of speed bowler Stuart Broad – – who had represented David Warner’s wicket multiple times for 35 runs during the 2019 Ashes – – and James Anderson being around with the side for the impending Ashes, Stokes answered, “You continue picking individuals in the event that they continue to perform. They are the two people I go to for something to tear the game open.

“They stand up in the big minutes, and if Broady (Stuart Broad) wasn’t to play, Davey Warner could rest somewhat simpler, so we must think about that,” said Stokes. On the impending visit through Pakistan, Stokes felt the pacers will not get that much buy from the wicket they get in home circumstances and players should be prepared for the difficulties.

“It’s (Pakistan) a hot nation, and you won’t go anyplace close as much help with the ball as you do in England. You will confront much more twist. That is another test for ourselves and something we are energized by.”
