Star all-rounder Ben Stokes has been added to England's test squad for the upcoming Ashes tour of Australia.
The 30-year-old is ready to return to competitive cricket following a mental health break.
He's been given the all-clear to resume training after undergoing surgery on a fractured left index finger.
Stokes will leave for Australia with the Test team on November 4 ahead of the first Test match on December 8.
"I'm ready for Australia."
