Stokes's return yet uncertain

England have yet to decide if Ben Stokes will make his return to international action in the third Test against India at Trent Bridge later this week.

The all-rounder was acquitted of affray at a trial in Bristol on Tuesday, having missed England's innings and 159-run win in the second Test at Lord's last week because it clashed with his court case.

Neither England nor India are obliged to confirm their XIs until the toss which, weather permitting, should take place before Saturday's first day in Nottingham.

2-0 up in a five-match series, England face a tricky decision over whether to change a winning side.

"It's good to have him back around the squad," Bayliss told reporters at Trent Bridge on Thursday. "I haven't actually spoken to him since...but I've got the next two days to assess where he's at."
