Ben Stokes today asked England’s improv team to take full advantage of this sudden opportunity with a smile. Let us tell you that Stokes was first left out of the original team to recover from finger surgery, but later he was included in the team.
said Stokes, "I told myself one thing that the team has to be told that this team has been prepared in a very haste and whatever name is written on the t-shirt of the England team, but we will go on the field as the number one team."
This star all-rounder further said, "It’s thrilling to say this to the team you’re a part of. Whether you are an experienced player, a young player or have joined the team for the first time. However, such situations are not common. You have got a chance to represent your country and do your job with a smile and enjoy as much as you can in the team."
Though the team lacks experience, Stokes expects the new team to be very competitive. England have included players like Brydon Cars, Will Jacques, Matt Parkinson, David Paine, Phil Salt and John Simpson for the ODI series against Pakistan. Also players like Jack Crawley, Ben Duckett, Lewis Gregory and Saqib Mahmood.
