That was a hell of a lot of defending, if true....


For his sake, I really hope he can corroborate that.

Call me cynical, but I'll believe it when the gents turn up.

Stokes to lose sponsors?

The furore has already seen the brewer Greene King pull an advert featuring the 26-year-old, with a company spokesman confirming that the ad, called the ‘The Knockabout’, would no longer be shown.

^^ so from that article, one of the victims is a soldier returned from Afghanistan who wouldn't hurt a fly.

Alex Hales' neighbor says he wouldn't hurt a fly.

I feel blessed to read about so many gentle folks who wouldn't hurt a fly. Perhaps they should all be recommended for a Peace Nobel.

It's taking them a long time to decide whether to charge him/them, anyway. It's not as if it's a complex fraud case... it's common assault with video evidence! scratch

Investigation length may see Stokes omitted from Ashes tour

"England all-rounder Ben Stokes will be withdrawn from the Ashes squad if he remains under police investigation when the tour to Australia begins.

The Test vice-captain, 26, was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm following an incident outside a Bristol nightclub on 25 September.

Police have put no timescale on the inquiry and such cases can take months to be resolved.

England fly out on 28 October, with the first Test starting on 23 November.

If the investigation is concluded before the squad departs, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) will assess the outcome before deciding whether Stokes is to retain his place or be dropped.

Although no formal decision has been made, the BBC understands that for Stokes to have any chance of going to Australia, he would have to face no further action or any potential court case would have to be dealt with within six weeks.

The incident outside the Mbargo club at about 02:35 BST on Monday, 25 September, left a 27-year-old man needing hospital treatment for facial injuries."


--------------------------------

It's getting tight. Less than 4 weeks to get the legal side sorted.

He will definitely not fly to oz with the team, but what happens next will be subject to the police/legal process.

He's had his central contract renewed, though. I guess missing the Ashes and perhaps taking the blame for a 5-0 defeat is enough punishment, in a cricketing sense... if the ECB come down harder they risk losing him long term to the global T20 franchise circuit.

Here's the article.

"Ben Stokes will not travel with the England squad when they depart for the Magellan Ashes tour of Australia, but the allrounder could still feature with no decision made on his involvement.

But England have added pace bowler Steven Finn to their squad that will depart London on October 28 as cover in light of the ongoing police investigation into Stokes' arrest in Bristol.

"Ben Stokes will not travel at this stage, though no final decision has been taken on his involvement in Australia," an ECB statement read.
...
England Director of Cricket Andrew Strauss said he wanted some clarity around speculation of Stokes's Ashes future.

"With the Ashes just around the corner, it’s important to give the players, the coaching staff and supporters some clarity around a complex situation," Strauss said in a statement.

"This decision will help us in the weeks ahead and give every player and the whole England set-up the best chance to focus on the challenge ahead in Australia."


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

AS I've said before, he'll get a rap over the knuckles then join the squad, and probably tear us a new arsehole in the Ashes.

Fines and warnings issued to Bairstow, Ball and Plunkett, who were also out drinking that night but went separate ways to Stokes and Hales at some point in the evening.
