England vs New Zealand: Ben Stokes misses practice due to illness, returns negative Covid-19 test

England Test captain Ben Stokes missed the training session on Tuesday due to illness ahead of the 3rd and final Test of the 3-match series against New Zealand. Stokes traveled to Leeds from his home while the rest of the England squad trained at Headingley which will host the final Test from June 23.

However, Ben Stokes has returned negative in a Covid-19 test, according to BBC. The all-rounder is expected to train with the rest of the team on Wednesday.

Ben Stokes had picked up a niggle during England's stunning chase of 296. Stokes hit an unbeaten 75 off just 70 balls after a stunning hundred from Jonny Bairstow on the final day as England sealed an unbeaten 2-0 lead in the series against the reigning world Test champions.

With England not naming a designated Test vice-captain, it remains to be seen who will lead the side if Stokes fails to recover in time from illness. Former captain Joe Root, who had stepped down from the top job earlier this year, is a contender, while senior paceman Stuart Broad might also be named the stand-in captain.

England will look to be cautious with their team selection as they have already sealed the Test series. Senior pacer James Anderson along with young Matthew Potts are likely to be rested as England will take on India in a rescheduled Test match against India in Birmingham from July 1, 3 days after the scheduled end of the 3rd Test against New Zealand.

England are trailing 1-2 in the 5-Test series which remained incomplete last year after the 5th Test in Manchester was postponed due to Covid-19 concerns in the Indian camp.

The touring Indian team, led by Rohit Sharma, have begun training in Leicestershire wherein they will play a 4-day practice match against the local county side from June 24.
