Ben Stock’s father dies, suffering from brain cancer
England star all-rounder Ben Stokes’ father Ged has passed away. Ged had been ill for a year with brain cancer. He was 65 years old. Stokes is currently touring South Africa for a limited-overs series with the England team.
He played in three T20 internationals but was rested from a series of one-day internationals which was canceled on Monday after several cases of Kovid-19 infection in a biologically safe environment.
The England and Wales Cricket Board said on its official Twitter handle, “All our thoughts are with Ben Stokes and his family following the passing of his father, Ged.”
