England all-rounder Ben Stokes has had a second operation on his injured finger and is unlikely to play in the Ashes against Australia this winter.
The 30-year-old took an indefinite break from cricket in July to protect his mental health and rest his left index finger, first injured in April.
He originally had surgery in April but has now had a second operation to remove two screws and scar tissue from the finger.
The Ashes are due to begin in December.
