(Photo) Stokes on the lookout for ‘selfless’ players to revive Test fortunes

Ben Stokes, who has been appointed England’s new Test captain following Joe Root’s resignation from the role, is on the lookout for a team of “selfless” cricketers to take the field alongside him, starting with next month’s first Test against New Zealand at Lord’s, as the squad aspires a turnaround of fortunes after having registered just a solo win in their last 17 Test matches.

Stokes will represent Durham in the first match of the season against Worcestershire this week, having been managing a knee injury that affected him during the West Indies tour.
