England going to consider rotating Stokes: Silverwood

By The Assam Tribune

MANCHESTER, July 22: England will �consider rotating� star all-rounder Ben Stokes even though his presence makes it a better team, said coach Chris Silverwood ahead of the third and final Test against the West Indies beginning on Friday.

Stokes scored 176 and 78 not out in the two innings and also took three wickets as England beat West Indies by 113 runs in the second Test to tie the three-match series 1-1.

His performance also earned Stokes the numero uno position in the ICC all-rounder rankings, displacing West Indies skipper Jason Holder.

�We want him out there as much as we can; everyone can see how good he is,� Silverwood said.

�But you know what, we�re going to consider rotating him. He�s been at the centre of the last couple of games and we�ve got to make sure he�s okay. But if he is fit and healthy, he�ll play.� � PTI
