Ben Stokes has been named in an unchanged 13-man England squad for the 4th Investec Test against India.

The 23-year-old has played the last two games for Durham after narrowly missing out on selection for the 3rd Test, which the hosts won by 266 runs at the Ageas Bowl to draw level in the five match series.

Stokes hit a 56-ball half-century and took two wickets in the match with Kent Spitfires and then helped Durham to a five wicket victory over Warwickshire on Thursday.

The 4th Test will commence on Thursday 7th August at Emirates Old Trafford.
