Stokes distraction: Root on England Ashes Squad

The arrest of Ben Stokes overshadowed the announcement of England's 16-man squad to face Australia in the Ashes.

James Vince and Gary Ballance are recalled as Joe Root talks us through the thinking behind the Ashes squad selection, and how he believes he has a team that can win in Australia.

Mason Crane is the second choice spinner while Ben Foakes is the reserve wicket-keeper and earns his first England call up.
