Ben Stokes is heading to New Zealand although he is not on the way to join England’s Ashes campaign.
Stokes was photographed at Heathrow on Monday with the English Cricket Board later confirming that it was a "private trip".
"The ECB is aware that Ben Stokes is making a private trip to New Zealand to spend time with his family," the ECB wrote.
"His travel arrangements have not been arranged by the ECB. He is not on his way to the Ashes, England Lions or any other official training camps with the England set-up."
