Mark Waugh Questions Relevance of India-Australia Series

England vice-captain Stokes is now suspended from global duty pending a police investigation after he was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm last month.

However, the European Central Bank have yet to rule him out of the Test series which starts on November 23, despite the fact he is now suspended on full pay.

Waugh, who led Australia to 41 wins in 57 Tests as captain in a glittering career, said England would not be the same threat without Stokes.

Apart from this, he said that he expects the crowds to be hostile and to get stuck into Ben Stokes if he takes the field, much like the way the English crowds treat Australia up in England.

And Waugh thinks Stokes' potential absence will pile more pressure on the experienced duo of Stuart Broad and James Anderson.

Waugh believes that Australia are well suited to pick a quality batsmen instead of an all-rounder, to combat Australia's recent collapses in the middle order.

Australia lost the five- ODI series against India by 1-4. "The No.1 priority is batting", he said. But I think they're coping pretty well.

"We've got a few options there, Hilton Cartwright, Glenn Maxwell's the incumbent No. 6 and guys like Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis. It just didn't look good and it's a bad image for the game", Waugh told Sky Sports. "He's got a heavy workload, as do a lot of the players", Waugh said.

"I think they [England selectors] are pretty keen for him to play in Australia. he's probably their best player, so it would be a real shame if he's not out here". Peter Nevill's definitely there or thereabouts, we've got a young guy in Alex Carey who's making good inroads, and even someone like Tim Paine, his glove work's been excellent when he's been given the chance in the T20s, it's just that he's probably not going to be playing for Tasmania, so that makes it a bit hard for him, but I think we've got the depth there.
