England all-rounder Ben Stokes is “desperate” to move on from his trial for affray, says captain Joe Root.

Stokes, 27, was found not guilty on Tuesday and will return to the England team for the third Test against India at Trent Bridge, which starts today (Saturday).

“He feels he is ready,” said Root. “He wants to make cricket his main focus.

“He has told me he’s desperate to get out there, wants to put in performances and concentrate on his cricket now.”

Stokes was charged for his part in an altercation outside a Bristol nightclub last September.

He missed England’s tour of Australia, as well as the second Test win against India at Lord’s while he stood trial.

Stokes will replace Sam Curran at Trent Bridge, where an England victory would seal the five-match series with two games to spare.

Although he is currently free to play for England, he could yet be sanctioned by the England and Wales Cricket Board’s disciplinary commission.
