Ben Stokes has been named in an unchanged 13-man England squad for the 5th and final Investec Test against India.

The 23-year-old narrowly missed out on selection for the 4th Test, which the hosts won by an innings and 54 runs to take a 2-1 lead in the five match series.

After being granted permission by the ECB to play for his county, Stokes hit a quick fire 49 from 44 balls and took 1-22 in eight overs to help Durham beat Glamorgan by 52 runs on Friday.

The 5th Test will commence on Friday 15th August at the Kia Oval.
