London: England all-rounder Ben Stokes has withdrawn from the remaining matches of the Test series against Pakistan.

Ben Stokes is considered one of the best all-rounders in Test cricket, but he did not do well in the first Test against Pakistan.

Stokes has withdrawn from the series against Pakistan due to family reasons and will not be able to play the last two Tests.

He will leave the UK for New Zealand this week.

It is to be noted that England easily defeated Pakistan by 3 wickets in the first Test after which the host team has taken a 1-0 lead in the series of 3 Test matches.
