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

England's Stokes signs up for Canterbury Stokes fails to fire again for Canterbury

The all-rounder is now playing for Canterbury Kings with he and Hales having not played for England since 24 September after they were declared unavailable for selection until further notice following their night out in Bristol which saw Stokes arrested.

The pair was suspended indefinitely by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) pending the outcome of a police investigation into Bristol brawl, which allegedly inflicted bodily harm on a man.

Stokes broke his week-long silence since arriving in Christchurch and signing to play for Canterbury, albeit briefly, declaring he was just excited to play cricket again.

Alex Hales, who was stood down by England's board after being with Stokes during the incident in Bristol, will not face charges and has also been included in the ODI squad.

As was the case ahead of the ongoing Ashes series, England's selectors were instructed to name their strongest squad for a five-match ODI rubber beginning in Melbourne on January 14.

Wildfire burns homes, Rupert Murdoch's winery in LA's posh Bel-Air area
The Skirball Fire alone has already burned more than 150 acres, with winds gusting to more than 50 miles per hour. In the posh Bel Air area, wildfire has destroyed "at least four and possibly six homes" and forced evacuation.

On whether Stokes will actually be available or not, Bayliss said: " I've got absolutely no idea. "Still waiting for the police report", coach Trevor Bayliss said, highlighting the enormous uncertainty over the star's availability.

Hales' position in the squad could yet come into doubt, should the CPS take no action against Stokes and the issue is handed to the Cricket Discipline Commission, but for now Hales is back in the mix and Morgan has no concerns over his state of mind. "There's been a fair bit of scrutiny that's come along with it in the first five or six weeks".

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

"We've got to take a decision but I think the best way is to go with the two guys who have taken over". "He had grafted over the last two years and every opportunity he got he managed to cash in. I can't see any changes there personally".

England ODI squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
