His finger wasnt healed looks like when he agreed to skipper that quickly arranged one day team.
But the metal health of the players has to be looked after, as discussed in the winter tour thread.

Very sad that Stokes will be missing but his well being is the most important thing.

Even without Stokes, don't see Ind posing any significant challenge in upcoming tests.

If he is struggling with his physical and mental health now then he needs to take a break now. We're not his doctors or his psychologists, not for us to say when it's appropriate or necessary for him to take a break.

Yea but that wouldnt allow him to shoehorn his opinion about white ball cricket into this thread would it

Totally. He gives everything in an England shirt and any team he represents so the timing cannot be anything other than it needs to happen now, maybe the start of something has happened and he's taken advice.

As I said in the winter tour thread, bubbles, huge time away from home and restrictions on what you can and cannot do must take their toll.

I think myself the argument so and so earns a million a year is no longer valid, we live in times where high salaries for high profile sportsmen and women are common.

If you look at the current restrictions on this winters tour, if nothing changes about families touring, it's a receipe for long term mental health issues.

The money in cricket distorts the way some people think. Things are changing, mental health is getting closer to physical health, perhaps the two are still not close enough some may think.

The England team plays virtually all year round, I'm not sure there are many,if any, other teams that play as much as we do-that has to be a factor here.

It'll be pot luck in the test series. Both teams aren't very good when it's not flat and haven't played much actual cricket. Enjoy it for what it is but don't take it seriously if <insert player of your choice> happens to get 0 or 100.. It's not going to be any indication of what they could do in the Ashes etc.
