All-rounder Ben Stokes has been rested for next week's Test against Ireland.

The Cumbrian today was not selected in the 13-strong squad for the Test at Lord's which starts next Wednesday after his man-of-the-match performance in England's stunning World Cup final success against New Zealand on Sunday.

Cockermouth's Stokes has, however, been included in a 16-man squad to attend a pre-Ashes training camp this weekend at St George’s Park, the Football Association’s national football centre, based at Burton-Upon-Trent.

Despite the ongoing celebrations in the wake of England's World Cup victory, Stokes insists England must already start preparing for future challenges, including the Ashes.

"We've achieved half of what we wanted to do, which is winning the World Cup," he told ITV's Good Morning Britain.

"Everyone who is involved in the Test team as well as the one-day team has sort of had to get their heads around the fact that we have an Ashes series coming up and we still have a serious amount of work to do."

Elsewhere, Jason Roy has been named in England's Test squad for the first time for the match against Ireland.

The opener scored 443 runs in England's triumphant World Cup campaign, but is not a regular top-order batsman in red-ball cricket.

Somerset all-rounder Lewis Gregory has been called-up for the first time.

England's leading Test wicket-taker James Anderson is included, too, despite injuring his calf earlier this month, playing for Lancashire at Sedbergh School.

Should he play, Roy is likely to open the batting with Surrey team-mate Rory Burns, who made his Test debut last winter.

Fast bowlers Mark Wood and Jofra Archer were not considered for selection because both players have left side strains.

An England Cricket Board [ECB] statement read: "Archer, who has yet to make his England debut in Test cricket, will have a period of rest before being considered for selection during the Specsavers Ashes Test series.

"He will have a short break in Barbados before returning to the UK later this month."

Wicket-keeper Jos Buttler also will not feature against Ireland.

England and Ireland have never faced each other in a Test.

It will be England's first red-ball match of the home summer, before the Ashes series against Australia begins on August 1 at Edgbaston.
