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

  • Ben Stokes was out LBW to Tarun Nethula for 34

Due to that investigation, Stokes wasn't able to travel to Australia with the England team, and has subsequently watched on as Joe Root's men have struggled.

Ben Stokes and Alex Hales have been provisionally selected for the one-day global series against Australia.

Match-winning all-rounder Stokes is not part of England's ongoing Ashes Test tour as he waits to discover if he will be charged after his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm during a late-night fracas in Bristol on September 25.

Alex Hales, who was also involved in the altercation, has also been given the green light to rejoin the global side.

"Selectors were given clear guidance to name their strongest squad and have made their selections accordingly", an European Central Bank release stated.

"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", the England Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement on Wednesday.

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

"I would like to wish captain Eoin Morgan, head coach Trevor Bayliss and the players every success during the series".

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

Australia will host England in the first of five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on January 14.

The Durham star scored 34 and took a catch, but failed to take a wicket in seven overs as Canterbury lost by seven wickets to Auckland at Eden Park.

Hales, also present during the incident outside a nightclub following England's ODI win the previous day, will not face any charges.

Asked about the timing of any clarification of Stokes' situation, Bayliss said: "I've got absolutely no idea".

"He is obviously getting cricket under his belt, which is a really good decision. given that he could potentially come back quickly".

Squad: Moeen Ali (capt), Jake Ball, Gary Balance, Mason Crane, Tom Curran, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes (wk), Keaton Jennings, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Liam Livingstone, Mark Wood. This follows Police confirmation that he will face no charges and the independent Cricket Discipline Commission staying its disciplinary process.

In addition to Stokes and Hales, Sam Billings and Mark Wood were added to the squad that beat Windies 4-0 in the ODI series held in England at the end of the British summer.
