'Circus' fears as Stokes included in ODI squad

Suspended all-rounder Ben Stokes was included Thursday in England's squad for their one-day series against Australia, with coach Trevor Bayliss bracing for "a circus" if he is cleared to play.

Stokes is currently banned from international cricket while British authorities probe his alleged involvement in a late-night fight outside a Bristol nightclub, and it remained in doubt whether he would play. Batsman Alex Hales, who was caught up in the same fracas, was also named in the 16-man squad for the 5-game series, starting in Melbourne on January 14.
