Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes, an all-rounder for England, is taking an inhaler during practice ahead of the World Cup match between ENG and SL. Stokes has previously had issues with his knee and hip. It begs the question of whether the Chennai Super Kings player has asthma. England, who are ranked ninth in the points table, is eager to get a victory before playing India on Sunday.

Ben Stokes will also play a significant part in both contests. After experiencing injury issues, Stokes was unable to contribute more than five runs and did not bowl. That was England’s loss.

Is Ben Stokes suffering from asthma?

It’s not required for someone to use an inhaler exclusively if they have asthma. For a variety of respiratory conditions, doctors prescribe inhalers. Additionally, asthma brought on by activity affects some athletes. Under these circumstances, an athlete may experience dyspnea during or following strenuous exercise.

Ben Stokes went through a variety of fielding drills, bowled, and batted at the nets during a long practice session in Bengaluru.

Another device for administering non-performance-enhancing steroids is an inhaler. Ben Stokes may be utilizing an inhaler per his doctor’s prescriptions because he has been dealing with knee and hip issues.

Numerous football players with asthma have participated in professional sports. Furthermore, neither Stokes’ asthma diagnosis nor that of the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have been verified.

Players who use inhalers in accordance with anti-doping rules, however, have come under intense scrutiny. Studies have shown that ß2-agonists in inhalers can improve an athlete’s strength and sprint.
