LONDON: Ben Stokes is back in England’s squad for his own well-being but the all-rounder is not an automatic choice for the third test against India, England coach Trevor Bayliss said on Thursday.
Stokes was cleared of affray on Tuesday over a fight outside a nightclub in Bristol, southwest England last year, which prosecutors said had left two men unconscious. “It was thought that for his own well-being it was good to get Ben back around the cricket,” Bayliss told a news conference ahead of the clash at Trent Bridge, Nottingham which starts on Saturday. “There’s nothing automatic about selections, we’ll see how he is mentally as well as physically. We’ll find out that.” Said Bayliss. (Reuters)

JD.com, which counts Tencent Holdings Ltd , Walmart Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google as investors, has been in and out of the red for the past year and on Thursday reported a second-quarter net loss of $334.4 million. That was nearly double forecasts for a $177 million loss in a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S poll of 18 analysts and reflected increased investments and slower sales.
