He's been given the all-clear to resume training after undergoing surgery on a fractured left index finger.

Stokes will leave for Australia with the Test team on November 4 ahead of the first Test match on December 8.

"I had a break to prioritise my mental wellbeing and I got my finger sorted," said the Durham player.

"I am looking forward to seeing my mates and being on the field with them. I'm ready for Australia."
