Ben Stokes comes out of retirement for ODI World Cup

Ben Stokes is to come out of ODI retirement and make himself available for England ahead of October’s World Cup

Stokes retired from the one-day format last year as he shifted his focus to captaining the Test team but will now be available for the World Cup, as England look to defend their 50-over title.

He was named player of the match in the 2019 final as England defeated New Zealand in a dramatic super over.

The Test captain’s decision to play the 50-over format means he will no longer be able to get surgery on his left knee that has troubled him all year.

Squads for the World Cup in India need to be submitted by September 5 but changes can be made until September 27.
