Ben Stokes is sitting out the 2nd Test against Pakistan

England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury, is doubtful for the five-match ODI series against Australia, beginning June 13 at The Oval.

The 26-year-old sustained an injury in his left hamstring while fielding during a recent training during session and subsequent scans revealed a tear in his left hamstring.

As a result, Stokes was ruled out of England's second Test of the two-match series against Pakistan and was replaced by debutant left-arm quick Sam Curran.

Stokes will now face a race against time to be fit for upcoming limited-over series against England, with the severity of his injury likely to be clearer in coming days when he undergoes another scan, cricket.com.au reported.

England are also slated to play a one-off ODI against Scotland in Edinburgh on June 10 before they will head to Australian series.

England will have a hectic schedule as later on the Three Lions will face India in a gruelling tour as the Men in Blue will play three ODIs and T20Is along with a five-match Test series.
