Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were left out of the England team before 4th ODI in just concluded ODI series against West Indies. Ben Stokes has been banned indefinitely by England Cricket Board after a video emerged of him punching two people in the street. An ECB statement regarding the incident “Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be considered for selection for England international matches until further notice”, England are under renewed pressure to sensationally sack Ben Stokes from the Ashes tour altogether after damning video footage emerged of him flooring another man outside a Bristol nightclub.
UK famous and prime newspaper “THE SUN” claims that English Star stokes threw a flurry of 15 punches in one minutes before a knock-out blow that sent a 27-year-old man crashing to the pavement and requiring medication for facial injuries. It’s an embarrassing look for the ECB and director of cricket, Andrew Strauss, who only hours earlier had named stokes in their 16 man Ashes squad and confirmed he would, at least for now, remain as vice-captain. The one hope for Stokes in the continuing police and ECB investigations is that the footage appears to show, one of the two men he is fighting is clutching a bottle, therefore asking questions about how the fight started.
It’s a shocking look for the game that one of the world’s biggest stars is involved in such a brutally violent incident two days before an International Standard match. Stokes issues with alcohol and anger management have been a long running saga for England cricket and this could be the final straw. Australia had been losing 11 ODIs on road before a win on 4th ODI against India but if England Team should cost stokes loss, then it will be more critical and worst condition for England than losing back to back 11 ODIs.

ECB director Andrew Strauss (talking with The SUN) admitted that they don’t have anything to hide as well as they will support police totally for truth investigation.
