Ben Stokes named in England squad for ODI series

Ben Stokes was out LBW to Tarun Nethula for 34

Former vice-captain Ben stokes has been included in the 16-man squad for the five-match ODI series against Australia which will begin from January.

The all-rounder is now playing for Canterbury Kings with he and Hales having not played for England since 24 September after they were declared unavailable for selection until further notice following their night out in Bristol which saw Stokes arrested.

Squad: Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

Selectors said in a statement that they had been advised to name their strongest squad, and picked the pair accordingly.

Opener Alex Hales has also been named in the squad after he was recently cleared of any wrongdoing in the Bristol incident in September, which led to the arrest of Stokes.

Bayliss admitted Stokes's potential appearance in Australia could be a distraction for the team.

England head coach Trevor Bayliss said about the prospect of Stokes's return and a media circus: " I'm sure there will be.

"Whether it's any more of a circus than it's already been, it's hard to say".

After making just two runs and had figures of 0-49 off nine overs in a defeat to Otago, he got off to a promising start in his second match. "We've got to adjust to that at some stage".

The first one-day worldwide between England and Australia begins on January 15 in Melbourne.

The banished England allrounder joined the New Zealand side on a short-term deal last week and debuted on Sunday.

The England all-rounder made a brisk 34 against Auckland today. While the charges against Stokes were severe, Hales did not suffer any charges from the officials. British detectives late last month passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision, but there has been no word since.

"I've got absolutely no idea". It will be decided at the point, if Stokes is to be reinstated to the national team and, if possible, for the remainder of the Ashes series.

The news has come as a big relief for the English cricket fans.
