Ben Stokes to join England squad in New Zealand

Ben Stokes will travel to New Zealand to join the England squad as part of their Twenty20 tri-series.

The 26-year-old Durham all-rounder was in court on Tuesday after being charged with affray.

Stokes missed the recent Ashes series, which hosts Australia won 4-0.

“He will arrive on Friday, 16 February ready to train with his England team-mates in Hamilton,” an England and Wales Cricket Board spokesperson said in a statement.

“Any decision to include him in upcoming matches will be made by head coach Trevor Bayliss and the England management team.”
