ENG vs NZ: Ben Stokes fell ill, this is the result of Kovid Test, what are the captaincy options

However, according to the BBC, Ben Stokes’ Kovid-19 test has proved negative. The all-rounder is expected to train with the rest of the team on Wednesday.

Ben Stokes did a wonderful job chasing England’s target of 296 runs during the last Test match. Stokes smashed an unbeaten 75 off just 70 balls after Jonny Bairstow’s scintillating century on the final day as England took an unbeaten 2-0 lead in the series against the Kiwis.

With England yet to name the Test vice-captain, it remains to be seen who will lead the side if Stokes fails to make a timely recovery from the illness. Former captain Joe Root, who resigned from the top post earlier this year, is a contender, while senior pacer Stuart Broad could also be named as the stand-in captain.

England will be cautious about their team selection as they have already sealed the Test series. Senior pacer James Anderson may be rested along with young Matthew Potts as India also face India in Birmingham from July 1, 3 days after this Test.

This past year’s five-match Test series with England trailing 1-2, went unfinished last year as the 5th Test in Manchester was postponed due to the Covid-19 panic in the Indian camp.

The touring Indian team led by Rohit Sharma has started training in Leicestershire where they will play a 4-day warm-up match against the local county team from June 24. At present, R Ashwin is not associated with the team as he was Kovid positive.
