To commemorate his recovery from the injury, Ben Stokes used social media to get fans to peek at his first training session. An English all-rounder removed two screws and scar tissue after breaking his left index finger while playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season in April. The ODI World Cup winner has posted several videos showing his various strokes. While posting the video, he also said, “Thursday casual clothing training … generally my first ball came back and this happened. Then don’t break your toes. I checked a little. One is great for hitting the ball back. “
Here is the video:
Stokes’ IPL franchise, Rajastan Royals (RR), also shared a video of his training session on social media, calling it a “eye sore sight.”

England’s pacemaker Joffra Archer welcomed his teammates and joked about the first appearance Stokes faced. He commented on Stokes’ post, “The first ball may be 4 anyway (it doesn’t matter how they come).”
Meanwhile, wicket-keeper batter Jos Buttler said, “It’s like riding a bike.”
Stokes also took an indefinite break from cricket in July to focus on his mental health. He hasn’t taken any action, but cricketer has maintained his contract with England.
Due to his absence, he was not included in the England ash team and was excluded from the T20 World Cup roster. The showpiece event will be held from October 17th in Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
