Selectors said in a statement they were advised to name their strongest squad, and picked the pair accordingly.

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.

"Whether it's any more of a circus than it's already been, it's hard to say". Alex Hales and Ben Stokes duo who 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.

In Stokes' absence, England kicked off the second Test by sticking the Aussies into bat in Adelaide but struggled to make any serious in-roads as the hosts closed day one on 209-4.

However, Stokes returned to competitive cricket last Sunday after New Zealand's domestic side Canterbury signed the all-rounder as their overseas player. If it happens, let's just get on with it and take it on the chin. England now deficiet in the Ashes series 2-0.

A lot of the pre-Ashes talk was dominated by Ben Stokes and whether or not he'd be eligible for England Down Under.

"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".

Hales, an opener who has not played any professional cricket since the September nightclub incident, learned this week that he will face no criminal charges, opening the door for his trip to Australia.
