Cuckfield-born Vince named in Ashes squad

Cuckfield-born Vince named in Ashes squad

Warner was thrust in front of the media to apologise, was fined $11,500 and was effectively banished from the first two Tests of the series after being sent to South Africa to play for Australia A.

It leads to some surprise for the 27-year-old, who admits he's had criticism. As a kid the Ashes is the one you watch.

Stokes was named Root's vice-captain earlier this year despite a long list of prior off-field indiscretions that have included him being arrested over a late night incident in 2012 and sent home from a tour for late night drinking in 2013. Durham all-rounder Stokes was dropped for Wednesday's fourth one-day worldwide against West Indies at The Oval - the venue for the Ashes squad announcement - after being arrested early on Monday in Bristol.

In a joint statement, the 52-member squad said their actions last week were "in no way a protest of the military, the flag or those who keep us safe".

Stokes broke his right little finger during a fracas that put a man in hospital, but the Durham all-rounder is expected to be fit for Brisbane. There was no place in the squad for batsmen Tom Westley and Alex Hales, and bowlers Mark Wood and Toby Roland-Jones.

Ben Stokes, the vice-captain, retains his place despite his arrest in Bristol on Morning morning but beyond this it is the selection of Hampshire's Vince that stands out most, coming 12 months after a run of seven Tests during which the right-hander averaged just 19 in the two series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan, with a top score of 43 and a propensity to nick off. "A tour of Australia is the ultimate test for our squad, " national selector James Whitaker said.

"He is a quality stroke player and we believe his game will suit the Australian pitches".

On the way down, a park ranger told DeGrazio there had been a fatality. "They're thinking, 'we're on big rocks, too, '" he said. A visitor to Yosemite National Park was killed Wednesday after being hit by a chunk of rock falling from El Capitan.

"He has the ability to contribute with the bat, with him scoring over 680 runs in the Championship this summer at an average of 45.33. To play for England last summer was special but to be called up for an Ashes tour is probably the best thing that can happen".

"But no part of me thought I wasn't up to playing at that level and having had a taste of it I went away with a hunger to work hard and get back in the side".

Also, there are three new faces in the squad namely Ben Foakes, Craig Overton, and Mason Crane. Bond will fill the gap left by former bowling chief Ottis Gibson's departure to become the new head coach of South Africa up until the end of the second Test.
