Stokes Cleared Of Affray In Bristol

England coach Trevor Bayliss says, ben Stokes is back in England's squad for his own well-being but the all-rounder is not an automatic choice for the third test against India.

Stokes was cleared of affray over a fight outside a nightclub in Bristol, Southwest England last year, which prosecutors said had left two men unconscious.

Stokes picked up six wickets in the first test as England defeated India by 31 runs.

Due to his court hearing, he was left out of the second of the five-match series as the hosts doubled their advantage with an innings victory last week.

His replacement Chris Woakes made an unbeaten 137 and picked up four wickets to be named man of the match at Lord's.

India coach Ravi Shastri told the team's misfiring batsmen to show more discipline to avoid another Test series defeat in England. The visitors were beaten 3-1 four years ago.
