Mark Wood Discusses This Year's Ashes Series At Home

England's Mark Wood has said that he intends to have a light workload during the Ashes series at home in June. 

After playing four Tests in the last Ashes tour, the right-arm paceman acknowledged to being exhausted.

Wood, who is presently in Bangladesh for the limited-overs series, has been a key architect of England's recent domination across all forms.

The Durham bowler was instrumental in England's T20 World Cup win and 3-0 Test series whitewash against Pakistan.

Wood told media in Chattogram that he is unlikely to play in all five Tests, but may if Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum want it. 

The 33-year-old believes the coaching staff will utilize his express speed sparingly.

According to ESPN Cricinfo, he said: I'm not going to play all five. I was overjoyed to play four out of five games in Australia.

I was weary, wrecked, and exhausted, but it was a big check in my box to say that in a major series, if Stokesy or Baz want me to play,

I can do it. I doubt I'll even play four. If they need a tempo aspect, they could even want me for one or two.
