Ben Stokes was included in England's 16-man squad for the Ashes tour of Australia announced Wednesday despite breaking his hand in the incident that led to his recent arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

Durham all-rounder Stokes, England's highest-profile cricketer and key match-winner, was dropped for Wednesday's fourth one-day international (ODI) against West Indies at The Oval - the venue for the Ashes squad announcement - after being arrested early on Monday in Bristol.

That followed England's win in the third ODI in the southwest city on Sunday.

Stokes, 26, remains under investigation after being released without charge.
