    Ben Stokes

    It appears that Ben Stokes may have had good reason to get involved in the altercation outside that club ...

    If the police accept these guys' evidence, he should be cleared.

    And if that's what he did, good on him.

    From the footage available I didnít see Stokes kick anyone in the head. He did punch someone to the ground heavily though and that could have caused serious injury.

    There was also talk of Stokes claiming self defence as one guy was threatening him with a glass bottle. You can clearly see the bottle rolling along the ground after the first bit of fighting. Iím sure you can see it in the guys hand beforehand too.

    He will eventually be on the plane to Brisbane but not without a last chance warning about future conduct.

    Looks like heíll avoid a more lengthy ban as a result of this evidence, but I donít think the ECB are happy with him being out in the first place. It was mid-series and it attracts trouble whether stokes (and/or Hales) is in the wrong or not.

    For that reason I canít see him playing the first one or two tests, maybe after that though - like warner in 2013.
