Ever since the Test series against India has started, it seems that England cannot put a foot wrong in any department. So when it came to picking newbie all-rounder Sam Curran or Ben Stokes for the third Test at Trent Bridge, England management went with the latter. On the eve of the match England skipper Joe Root said that Stokes will be a part of the playing XI after missing out on the Lord's Test. Root made it clear that it was a hard decision to drop in-form Curran but he can certainly make a comeback in the team. As for Stokes, Root said that after the trial, the former is raring to be on the field.
