Stokes predicts Ashes 'theatre'.
Ben Stokes is predicting "theatre" between England and Australia when the Ashes begins on Thursday. Australia have worked on improving their image following the ball-tampering scandal that resulted in long-term bans for then-captain Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft. All three batsmen are set to return in the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston on Thursday, live on Sky Sports, and Stokes is not expecting relations between the sides to be cordial for too long.
