However, as you say, he was brought in to replace injured, not out of form, players, so it is no surprise that he is left out once they are all available.
But Stokes' form is questionable at best and the notion that he is a world-class all-rounder is laughable. Capable of match-winning performances but nowhere near the consistency required.

steeleye20 is playing for a contract
Buttler's fielding is poor he should never have been in the slips and is not particularly mobile.

His batting is strictly one day sometimes it may come off, when it does it is amazing but he is not reliable.

Curran has been hard done by here, done everything that could have been asked of him.

Stokes has not even apologised, he only has to mutter a few words about not wanting to bring the game into disrepute or something.

Not happy but there it is.

England were 300 ahead with almost 2 days to play, there was no sacrifice needed at that point.

Ok, he got out slogging when the team wanted to score runs quickly. Could just as justifiably sat on his bat and picked up an asterisk.

They were just over 200 ahead when Curran came in and he and Woakes added 75 at 5 an over. Arguably a partnership as valuable as Bairstow and Woakes as it gave England the time and lead to set attacking fields.

Has played for the team, and delivered. As well as offering something completely different with the ball.

Another laughable decision from the blazers. Will we spend another summer failing to develop a spinner for the winter tours?

Curran needs to up his game.

Start flashing £300 about to get into some shitty club, break his hand punching a locker, get sent home from an England tour, knock a couple of blokes out when pissed up between games. That sort of thing.

We just crushed India with two twenty year old lads in the team. Let’s bring in a tattooed brawler in for one of them.

Inept wankers.

A terrible decision but presumably means Sam will be available to play for Surrey v Lancs on Sunday so there's a silver lining.

Agnew, on whether they should have dropped Curran or Buttler - 'You can't go into the game with five seamers & a spinner'

You can if that fifth seamer (Curran) is going to get you more runs than one of the batsmen (Buttler).

Disgraceful decision.
If we were 2-0 behind in an Ashes series I could understand picking Stokes, but far better to give young Sam experience when we're 2-0 up against a woeful one man Indian team.
Will be interesting to see what happens to Danny Cipriani in comparison.

Behind or in front, Stokes should have been the water boy for the rest of the series and been happy to do so, the pissed up violent twat.
