England all-rounder Ben Stokes will miss the remainder of the #raisethebat Test series against Pakistan for family reasons.
Stokes will leave the UK later this week and travel to New Zealand. He will miss England's two Test matches against Pakistan at the Ageas Bowl on Thursday, August 13 and Friday, August 21.
The England and Wales Cricket Board, along with the Stokes family, requests that all media respects the family's privacy at this time.
