Spinner Dom Bess added to England squad for 2nd Test

England have added spinner Dom Bess to their squad for the second Test beginning on June 10th.

The 23-year-old off-spinner, who last played a Test in March, against India in Ahmedabad where he returned wicketless, has been called up as cover for left-arm spinner Jack Leach.

Bess has picked 36 wickets in 14 Test matches with five-wicket hauls and an equal number of four-wicket hauls.

England’s all-rounder Ben Stokes is likely to resume competitive cricket with a T20 Blast game for Durham next week.

This will be Stokes’s first T20 Blast game in three years.

Other England players like Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Adil Rashid will also appear in the T20 tournament for the first time in many years.

The 30-year-old Stokes had to pull out of Indian Premier League before its suspension after a fracture to his left index finger.

He underwent a surgery for it.
