Ben Stokes suffers in New Zealand domestic game, England's Ashes woes continue

Ben Stokes made 34 but went wicketless as his Canterbury side lost to Auckland Alex Hales must wait his turn, warns England coach Trevor Bayliss after opener recalled for one-day series

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.

"Selectors were given clear guidance to name their strongest squad and have made their selections accordingly", the European Central Bank said in a short statement.

Stokes is now awaiting the verdict on whether he will be charged for his involvement in a pub brawl in Bristol in September.

Coach Trevor Bayliss said: "That's been discussed - but whenever he comes back it's going to be a bit of a circus for sure".

The banished England allrounder joined the New Zealand side on a short-term deal last week and debuted on Sunday.

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. "We've got to adjust to that at some stage".

"The two guys who have taken over, I just think that's the best way to go".

Bands of heavy lake-effect snow are likely to develop by Wednesday morning downwind of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario in western NY . It will be chilly with clouds probably having the upper hand on the sky, but at least it will be tranquil to end the week.

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.

Avon and Somerset police have completed their investigation and have now handed the files over to the Crown Prosecution Service to decide whether or not charges should be laid.

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 vast uncertainty over the star's availability.

"The ECB Board has convened via conference call to make the decision after being informed that Hales is deemed a witness and will face no charges".

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.

"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.
