Stokes named in England ODI squad for New Zealand tour

stokes02021

Ben Stokes has been named in the England ODI squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand.

The allrounder's availability revolves around legal proceedings back in the UK after he was charged with affray and an ECB statement said his travel arrangements have yet to be confirmed.

Stokes has a court date in Bristol on February 13 but he has been preliminarily picked for the five-match series against the Blackcaps, which begins on February 25.

Eoin Morgan captains the side, which goes into the games on a high after the 4-1 victory in ﹰAustralia.

The 15-man travelling party also includes Joe Root, who is to be rested during the T20 Tri Series which also involves New Zealand and Australia.

Chairman of selectors James Whitaker said: “Our ODI side has made good progress over the last two years and it's encouraging to see with the 2019 World Cup on the horizon.

“We're sure to encounter strong opposition in New Zealand but it's another opportunity for the team to test themselves and to continue playing entertaining cricket.

“I would like to wish everyone involved in the squad the best of luck."

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
