England refrains from major changes for New Zealand tests

England All-rounder Ben Stokes who missed out on the entire Ashes has been included for the Tests in New Zealand. England will play two Tests against the Kiwis after the limited-overs fixtures in Australia. Stokes missed the series after being banned from worldwide duties as police investigate his alleged role in a brawl outside a Bristol nightclub in September 2017. Nearly three months ago, the all-rounder was controversially involved in a fist fight outside a bar in Bristol.

Stokes, arrested in September on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after an incident in Bristol, spent time playing one-day cricket for Canterbury before returning to England just before Christmas.

The ECB has confirmed that if they receive notification that Stokes has either been charged or not charged, the ECB board will convene within 48 hours to decide on his availability for the tour.

"He is a very talented and tough cricketer who has the ideal qualities and character to be successful in the Test arena", he added. However, Gary Ballance, Jake Ball and Tom Curran were dropped. He was ruled out of the Ashes tour because of an ankle injury although he travelled with the squad for the last few weeks as he built back up to full fitness.
