- Stone may not return to face Australia until third Test in July
- Nottinghamshire bowler facing ‘five to six weeks’ out
Olly Stone faces a battle to be fit for the second half of this summer’s Ashes series after scans pointed to a “five to six week” absence with a hamstring injury.
The England fast bowler, 29, pulled up with an injury during Nottinghamshire’s Division One match with Lancashire at Trent Bridge last weekend and it is understood he has been ruled out of the first Test at Edgbaston that starts on 16 June.
