Ben Stokes named in England ODI squad to face Australia

Reports have suggested that England may draft in Stokes ahead of the third Ashes 2017-18 Test at Perth, but the England and Wales Cricket Board awaits police decision, which will be followed by their own inquiry.

Stokes is not now part of England's Ashes squad as he awaits the result of the ongoing police investigation into that incident outside a nightclub following his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm on 25 September.

However, Stokes returned to competitive cricket last Sunday after New Zealand's domestic side Canterbury signed the all-rounder as their overseas player.

That means Stokes is included, even though the all-rounder is now the subject of an European Central Bank suspension as he waits to hear whether he will be charged for his involvement in a disorder that took place in Bristol in September.


England's one-day captain Eoin Morgan is confident that Alex Hales will be able to focus on his game after being made available for selection, following confirmation by police that he is no longer a suspect in the incident that took place in Bristol on September 25, although it seems likely he won't immediately earn his place back in the starting XI against Australia.

Stokes, who has been suspended from global cricket following his brawl at a Bristol bar, was dismissed for a 41-ball 34 and remained wicketless in his spell of 7-0-39-0. "Still waiting for the police report", coach Trevor Bayliss said, highlighting the vast uncertainty over the star's availability. We won't know it actually until it comes along. Whenever he comes back that's going to be a bit of a circus for sure. "There's been a fair bit of scrutiny that's come along with it in the first five or six weeks". "But we've got to adjust to that at some stage".

"Whether it's any more of a circus than it's already been, it's hard to say". "He had grafted over the last two years and every opportunity he got he managed to cash in".

"Hales has a bit to do to get back in the team".
