Ben Stokes will play under new England white-ball captain Jos Buttler in the one-day series against India rather than rest ahead of late summer Test commitments.

In May, former captain Eoin Morgan told Sportsmail that Stokes wouldn’t be seen in limited-overs action all summer but the Test captain joins Yorkshire duo Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow in a 15-man squad for a three-match series which offers England the chance of reclaiming their world number one ranking from New Zealand with victory.

Stokes, 31, has gone against the rest and rotation policy previously employed by England at the start of his Test tenure and appears to have persuaded the hierarchy during face to face meetings last week that he doesn’t need to put his feet up ahead of next month’s three-match series against South Africa.
