Internet Desk: The selectors of England Cricket Board (ECB) has included Ben Stokes in the 16 men squad today which will tour to Australia to play the Ashes despite he was arrested by the Bristol police on Monday on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm. Stokes was not included in the England ODI team that will face West Indies at the Oval after this incident.

The star English all-rounder is currently the vice-captain of the Test team but the selectors haven’t said anything about whether he would be the deputy of Joe Root during the Ashes tour.

Ashes-holders England face Australia in the first of five Tests in Brisbane starting on November 23.
