The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

BEN Stokes is set to miss Eng­land’s one-day series against Aus­tralia af­ter suf­fer­ing a torn ham­string that ruled him out of the sec­ond Test against Pak­istan.

Stokes was back to some­thing close to his best dur­ing Eng­land’s de­feat in the first Test at Lord’s, hit­ting 38 and tak­ing three wick­ets.

He in­jured a ham­string dur­ing train­ing on Thurs­day and Eng­land will re­assess him in the next few days. It is un­der­stood he is likely to sit out the five one-day­ers against Aus­tralia, which start on June 13.
