Stokes desperate to get out there: Root

James Anderson’s 81 against India in 2014 is the highest score by an England No 11

England on Friday announced that Ben Stokes will return to their playing XI for the third Test against India starting on Saturday at Trent Bridge.

"Myself, the management, the captain, [stand-in director of England cricket] Andy Flower, the board - everyone had a bit of a say and basically thought for his wellbeing it was good to get him back around the cricket".

Stokes was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing at Bristol Crown Court on Tuesday, nearly 11 months after being arrested following a brawl outside a nightclub in the Clifton area of the city.

Surprisingly, England has chose to go with Ben Stokes in place of Sam Curran who was the hero in the first Test match at Edgbaston.

"It was one of the most hard decisions Ive had to make as captain".

Bayliss revealed that Stokes, who was recalled to the Test squad just hours after his acquittal for affray, had apologised to his England team-mates when he joined up with them for the New Zealand tour earlier this year. "If I was in England's position, I would have wanted him to play", the former India all-rounder added. Hes desperate to get out there, put in performances and concentrate on his cricket now.

Ben Stokes has been named in England's squad for the next Test. "He feels ready to play".

"We obviously assessed his fitness as well, over the course of the two days, and made that call".

Stokes, a key figure in the first match, was absent last time out at Lord's as he stood trial in Bristol on a charge of affray.

England's Ollie Pope and teammates celebrate victory during day four of the Specsavers Second Test match at Lord's, London. "I think some people would see that as the easy option to leave Sam out but he's offered so much to this bowling group and at the start of the series I said to the team for us to win a five-match series against the best side in the world it's going to take more than just 11 players".

'What Sam has done so far has been nothing short of high class, ' Root added.
