Ben Stokes Interview

Please find below a link to download a video interview with Durham and England all-rounder Ben Stokes.

Stokes is set to become the 81st England men’s Test captain on Wednesday after it was confirmed last week that he will replace Yorkshire’s Joe Root as captain. Root, who has returned to Sheffield to be at the birth of his second child, left the secure bubble in Southampton last week. He will self-isolate for seven days before joining up with the squad ahead of the second Test at Emirates Old Trafford starting on 16 July and will resume the captaincy duties.
