Stokes called up to England’s third Test squad

LONDON: Ben Stokes is in line to play in the third Test against India after being recalled to the squad following his acquittal on a charge of affray.

The 27-year-old New Zealand-born all-rounder, who took six wickets in the first Test victory over India but missed the second Test due to the trial, was found not guilty by a unanimous decision by the jury in Bristol after less than three hours of deliberations.

“Ben Stokes will now join the England squad for the 3rd Test against India, which starts at Trent Bridge on Saturday,” read the statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
