Prior to the commencement of England tour of Australia, England have succumbed to a loss by the name of Chris Woakes. His injury came to the English dugout as a threat to face the mighty Australians in front of English crowd. Hence seamer Jake Ball comes into as savior. He made his return to the team as a replacement for all-rounder Chris Woakes, who is unfortunately set to miss the first part of this month’s one-day series against Australia due to a thigh injury.
Woakes took up this injury in his right quad strain during last week’s series equalling Test win over Pakistan. He was already ruled out of the one-off ODI against Scotland on June 10. With this injury, the 29-year-old joins Ben Stokes who had already been ruled out of the series due to a hamstring tear but it seems like the recovery of that string is very evident nowadays.
