Ben Stokes' return to action was delayed as rain spoiled the proceedings on the opening day of England's warm-up match against England Lions in Brisbane. Stokes has been included in England's Ashes squad after taking an indefinite break from all cricket in July to look after his mental well-being and nurse his fractured finger. Half-centurion Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns took England to 98 without loss before play was halted early in the second session in Wellington Point. The first Ashes Test at the Gabba begins on December 8.
