Ben Stokes has been included in England‘s 14-man ODI squad against India. Stokes had picked up a hamstring injury  which he suffered in the lead-up to the second Test with Pakistan. However, he seems to be recovering fast and is all set to play for Durham Jets against Yorkshire Vikings in the T20 Blast next Thursday, on July 5. On the other hand, Sam Billings, left out of the England squad as the Australia went on, was not recalled. Billings will only be roped in if Stokes is ruled put. Billings, who featured in the game against Scotland and the first ODI against Australia could only manage 23 runs in total.

England have done exceptionally well whitewashing Australia in the limited-overs series. They will now look to maintain their winning streak. India, on the other hand, have showed dominance in their last overseas limited-overs tour, in South Africa, will give tough fight to the hosts.

England squad for India ODIs: Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Jake Ball, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Mark Wood.
