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

Stokes is now unable to play for his country pending a decision on whether to charge him in connection with an altercation outside a Bristol nightclub in September.

New Zealand-born Stokes did not travel to Australia with the rest of the squad for the Ashes Test series, and has missed the first two in Brisbane and Adelaide, with England losing both of them.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is waiting to learn if he faces charges for a brawl outside a Bristol club that left another man with a fractured eye socket.

The Ford Trophy encounter between Canterbury and Auckland is turning out to be a forgetful affair for Stokes, who was punished by Munro. "Still waiting for the police report", coach Trevor Bayliss said, highlighting the vast uncertainty over the star's availability.

The left-hander hammered three boundaries in an over off Stokes in an unbeaten 174 off 118 balls, and according to the New Zealand Herald, Stokes" "body language hardly improved' during the game.

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

"At the same time, we're still two years away and there might be some younger players, like Craig Overton for example, who comes into the team and does well".

Acknowledging that scrutiny, Bayliss added: "I'm sure there will be. There's been a fair bit of scrutiny that's come along with it in the first five or six weeks".

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.

In a media release on Thursday, the ECB said: "Should the ECB Board receive formal confirmation that Ben Stokes has either been charged or that he will face no charges, they would convene within 48 hours to make a decision on his availability for the team at that stage".
