Ben Stokes will be training with England as his father moves into 'stable condition'
Ben Stokes’s father, Ged, has shown signs of improvement following his admittance to hospital in Johannesburg on Monday.
He remains in intensive care, but has responded positively to treatment and is now in a stable condition.
England will train at SuperSport Park today (Christmas Day morning) and Ben is expected to play a full part in the practice ahead of the first Test starting on Boxing Day.
The Stokes family wishes to thank everyone for their support and in particular the medical practitioners in South Africa for their care of Ged.
The England and Wales Cricket Board continues to request that the media and public respect Ben and his family’s privacy at this time.
