Stokes To Return Against Spitfires

Stokes To Return Against Spitfires

Ben Stokes has a highest score of 150* in List A cricket

Ben Stokes has been added to the Durham squad for the Royal London One-Day Cup clash with Kent Spitfires on Tuesday (2pm start)

The all-rounder linked up with his county teammates on Sunday evening after narrowly missing out on selection for England in the 3rd Investec Test against India.

Stokes, who has an impressive List A bowling average of just under 25, is now expected to feature in the 50-over match at The Spitfire Ground in Canterbury.

Durham travel to the south-east after they lost their opening Group A game to Somerset by five wickets. Despite a century from Paul Collingwood, an unbeaten stand of 209 between James Hildreth and Lewis Gregory took the hosts to victory at Taunton.

Durham squad:
23. Mark Stoneman*
19. Phil Mustard+
14. Calum MacLeod
38. Ben Stokes
