Stokes reveals tattooed back as England cricketers hit Barbados beach

England cricket
stars are settling nicely into life in Barbados ahead of their upcoming tour fixtures, and took straight to the beach for a double hit of sun and sea.
All the big names were present as England made the most of some downtime by topping up their tans and diving into the clear blue waters.
The fully tattooed back of talisman Ben Stokes was on show, as the all-rounder joked around with team-mates and sized up a pair of goggles before heading back to the sea.
Ever the professional, captain Joe Root made sure to continue practising his hand-eye coordination skills as he got involved in a game of frisbee with team-mates while in the water.
England will get their tour up and running against the CWI President's XI at Three Ws Oval, Cave Hill on Tuesday.
They will then move over to the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, to kick off their international Test match series against the West Indies on January 23.
One man who is looking to make an impression in the Caribbean is Olly Stone, who looks set to make his Test debut.
'I'm a better bowler now than before I went to Sri Lanka,' Stone, who has just signed a new deal at Warwickshire, recently told Sportsmail.
'You do learn a lot from the senior bowlers.
'My mental game is better now and my skills have been topped out. It was about training with a purpose. 
'Even if you only bowl two overs in the nets, make them right up there with how you'd bowl in a match. The training was about being specific and making the most of your time.'
