Four options England could consider to replace Ben Stokes at the T20 World Cup

Try a similar one and choose another all-rounder

Although none have the class that Stokes possesses, England have some good all-rounders in their ranks and can boast two players in the top 10 of the ICC Men’s T20I All-Rounder rankings.

They are Liam Livingstone (eighth) and Moeen Ali (ninth) and both players are likely to force their way into the England squad for the 20 over showpiece.

Reigning T20 World Cup player of the tournament Sam Curran will also join them, but could another all-rounder be considered?

Underrated all-rounder Chris Jordan was born in Barbados and will feel at home in matches played in the Caribbean. He has rarely let England down in the past when he has been included in the playing XI.

This was evident during the 2022 T20 World Cup final in Melbourne, when Jordan claimed two key wickets of Pakistan as they played a key role in England’s title success.
