The former vice skipper of Ben Stokes was recalled today in the England's 14-man squad for the three-match ODI series against India, which plays three matches against India next month.
England is in stunning form after defeating Australia. England achieved a 6-0 clean-sweep against Australia in ODIs and T20Isin June. The team management of England have no doubt about Stokes' importance to their first-choice XI.
As reported in ESPN, "Ben is a three-in-one player," Paul Farbrace said ahead of the squad announcement. "He can bowl and he is the best fielder. You are going to bring him in as soon as he is available. It might mean another shift in your batting order but he's not a bad bloke to be coming into your team."
The ODI series between India and England commencing from 12th July.
