Ben Stokes all rounder to missed ODI series against Australia

Last year, he starred for Rising Pune Supergiant in his maiden IPL campaign.

After the European Central Bank placed a ban on Stokes for the assault in Bristol, he was unable to turn out for the Ashes squad and has seen his time with England severely limited.

The ECB has given permission for Stokes to be in the list of players available to compete in this year's Indian Super League, despite his long standing global ban.

Ben Stokes is up for auction again.

This could make Stokes one of the highest paid players in the entire league without even being an global cricketer.

It meant the all-rounder was unable to be part of the Ashes squad now touring Australia while police investigated the incident.

The ECB said he would not travel with the group of players leaving for Australia on Tuesday and his availability will depend on Crown Prosecution Service advice.

The ECB will only meet to decide on their stance going forward when the CPS make their decision, which is expected to be later this month.

Although named in the Ashes and ODI squads, he was told he would not be selected until the issue was resolved.

But with the delay in deciding if any criminal charges would be made, there was no chance of him being able to board a plane to Australia.

Playing six games for the New Zealand side, it was evident he left his form back in England, showing his rust during the short stint.

England has replaced Ben Stokes in its one-day global squad and given the allrounder permission to enter the draft for the Indian Premier League at the end of January.

Stokes was earlier named in England's squad for the upcoming one-day series, even though he remains unavailable for worldwide selection.

The ODI series between Australia and England begins in Melbourne on January 14, after which the teams will play a T20I series before England embark on their tour of New Zealand.
