Stokes feared the worst after choking on tablet


England star Ben Stokes has revealed the worrying moment when he nearly choked on a tablet that had become lodged in his throat.

The 30-year-old all-rounder took an indefinite break from all cricket in July to prioritise his mental well-being and rest a fractured finger.

But the Durham hero has used his newspaper column to say how it was neither of those issues which caused him the greatest concern ahead of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane from December 8-12.

The article does not say exactly when the incident took place but it appears to have been on the current tour of Australia. —AFP
