Ben Stokes will not travel with the England squad on October 28 to Australia to contest the Ashes. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has not made a final decision on Stokes' involvement in the five-Test Ashes tour but, if he does feature, he will travel later. The 26-year-old allrounder is under investigation by police having been arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm last month after an incident outside a Bristol nightclub. The ECB has also announced Steven Finn will be added to the Ashes touring squad due to ongoing inquiries by Avon and Somerset police. Neither Stokes nor Alex Hales, who has also spoken to police in connection with the alleged Bristol incident, is being considered for selection until further notice. In a separate matter, the ECB has also fined and issued a written warning to Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball and Liam Plunkett after a disciplinary investigation into behaviour during the recent one-day series against the West Indies. No further details have been given but the ECB has stated clearly this issue is "unrelated to the investigations into Ben Stokes and Alex Hales".
