Ben Stokes named in England's ODI squad for Australia series

Ben Stokes leaves Eden Park Outer Oval after being dismissed

Controversial all-rounder Ben Stokes has been named in England's 16-man squad for a five-match ODI series against Australia in his first step towards an Ashes recall.

All-rounder Stokes is now playing for Canterbury in New Zealand after he was declared unavailable for England selection in the aftermath of the September 25 fracas outside a night club in Bristol during the limited-overs series against Windies.

"Both Alex Hales and Ben Stokes are included, though their involvement remains subject to any relevant legal or disciplinary developments in relation to the incident in Bristol in September", they said.

And following England's punishing Second Test defeat to Australia today, the need for the return of one influential 26-year-old has never been more pressing.

The Everton boss will not travel with the squad and it is understood Craig Shakespeare will take charge for the European clash with Apollon Limassol.

Bairstow, Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes and Jake Ball are the only members of England's test squad who will stay on for the ODI series. He was subsequently overlooked during the selection of the squad for the Ashes, which England now trail 0-2. "That's been discussed - but whenever he comes back it's going to be a bit of a circus for sure".

Stokes' performance was at least an improvement on his Canterbury debut last weekend when he scored only two runs in a six-ball innings and went wicket-less in nine overs in a loss to Otago. While the charges against Stokes were severe, Hales did not suffer any charges from the officials. He is waiting for the judgment from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

BEN STOKES showed little sign he is ready to help save The Ashes for England in his second appearance playing in New Zealand.

On whether Stokes will actually be available or not, Bayliss said: " I've got absolutely no idea.

Moeen Ali will lead the English team in a two-day warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI starting on Saturday at Richardson Park, Perth.

He is joined by Alex Hales, who was also suspended after the Bristol incident but has since been told he can play for England after police confirmed he would not face criminal charges.

"With around 18 months to the start of the 2019 World Cup, our ODI side continues to make solid progress with series wins over the West Indies and South Africa last summer and a semifinal berth in the Champions Trophy", said James Whitaker, the European Central Bank selector.
