England all-rounder Ben Stokes on Tuesday said he wasn't sure of playing the game again a few months ago following the indefinite break from all cricket he took earlier this year. Stokes will be seen in action on Wednesday when England and Australia lock horns in the first Ashes Test. Last year, on December 8 Stokes' father Ged Stokes passed away after a year-long battle with brain cancer at the age of 65.
