leave from cricket for mental health
England all-rounder Ben Stokes has been expressing his discomfort for a long time due to the stress of playing in the safety zone. This time he has taken an indefinite break from cricket with mental health in mind.

The England Cricket Board (ECB) has confirmed the news of his unexpected leave. "The ECB is confirming that England men's all-rounder Ben Stokes is taking an indefinite break from all forms of cricket," they said.

ECB managing director Ashley Giles said, “We will wait for him to play for England.

The all-rounder has had a difficult time in his personal life. Her father died of cancer last December. He was away from cricket at that time due to his father's illness.

After that he returned to the field but England could not find him regularly. However, considering the mental aspect of the players, the ECB chose the rotation policy. Cricketers are played back and forth in every series.
