England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker James Anderson will be the team's vice-captain for the Ashes series against Australia in the absence of Ben Stokes.

Stokes is awaiting the outcome of a police investigation into a fight outside a nightclub in September.

Anderson, 35, who has 506 Test wickets, is the preferred understudy to Captain Joe Root ahead of fellow bowler Stuart Broad and ex-skipper Alastair Cook.

Meanwhile, pace bowler Jake Ball is to have a scan on an injured right ankle.
