England Test captain Ben Stokes has reacted to his former teammate Stuart Broad's tweet about bowling a 10-over spell with a dodgy knee. In a County championship Division One match, Durham outclassed Somerset by an innings and 6 runs in a low-scoring encounter.

Ben Stokes played a key role in Durham's win as he picked up 4-23 in a 10-over spell. Watching Stokes bowl such a long spell despite his knee issues lately, Stuart Broad couldn't resist and urged him not to bowl such spells with a dodgy knee.

"Hi Ben. Love you & you have a heart of a lion. Please stop bowling 10 overs spells with a dodgy knee," Broad had tweeted a day earlier on X (previously known as Twitter)

Durham finished the game within two days and picked up important points. After finishing the game, Stokes came up with a light-hearted reply to the former England fast bowler.

"F**k off Stuart what dodgy knee," Stokes replied to Broad.

Ben Stokes picked up 8 wickets in the match and also bowled the most no. of overs for his team across both the innings. He picked up 8-77 in the match. With the bat though, he failed to make an impact as he was dismissed for a duck by fast bowler Jake Ball.

Stokes has been suffering from knee issues for some time now. He has often played as a specialist batter on some occasions as he is not fit to bowl. In his recent internnational assignment in an away Test series in India, Stokes hardly bowled. His bowling was sorely missed by England on pitches conducive for reverse-swing.
