But the 26-year-old is expected to join the squad in New Zealand for February's T20 tri-series, live on Sky Sports, following the European Central Bank board's decision.
Ben Stokes' hopes of making his England comeback next month have been scuppered after his court date to hear an affray charge was set for February 13 - the same day that he was due to return in a T20 against New Zealand in Wellington.
Stokes was charged on Monday by the Crown Prosecution Service over an incident in Bristol in September a year ago but, having been unavailable since his initial arrest, he can now resume his global career.
Stokes has not played for his country since his arrest and stated that he was "extremely delighted" to have been given the opportunity to resume his worldwide career in his country of birth.
The 26-year-old is now expected to join the England squad in February to play T20 matches against New Zealand after being suspended indefinitely by the board pending the outcome of a police investigation into the incident.
"Hopefully we can get him some cricket somewhere as part of his practice going into the New Zealand leg. I can't wait to get back out on a pitch with the three Lions on my chest".

Sanders stopped short of saying whether the White House actually invoked executive privilege to block Bannon's testimony, however. Mueller has reportedly been interested in a series of misleading statements that emerged about that meeting.
Even worse, Stokes will now be reviewed by the Wales Cricket Board in the next 48 hours to decide if he will be able to play for England in the next few competitions.
Upon learning on Monday of the charge he faces, Stokes issued a statement in which he said: "I am keen to have an opportunity to clear my name but, on advice, the appropriate time to do this is when the case comes to trial".
The 26-year-old missed the Ashes series in Australia as a outcome of the incident, with the England and Wales Cricket Board opting to rule him out.
"It was certainly something we'd much rather not have had to deal with but all credit to the players, once the games came around they were fully focused on playing".
As well as Stokes' short-term England position, there is also the impact on his potential IPL involvement.
