England cricketer Stokes to stand trial during India series


The co-accused, 28-year-old Ryan Ali and 26-year-old Ryan Hale, also entered not-guilty pleas on the grounds of "self-defence and defence of another".

England cricketer Ben Stokes will stand trial in August, during a test series against India, after pleading not guilty over an altercation outside a nightclub.

Stokes, Ali and Hale are jointly charged with affray in Bristol on September 25 past year - several hours after England had played a one-day global against the West Indies.

The trial is expected to last up to a week, which means Stokes will not be available for the Lord's Test, which begins on August 9. "You will remain on bail as before".

The trial will take place at the Bristol Crown Court and is set to last five to seven days, ruling him out of the Lord's Test as reported by ESPNCricinfo.

The trial is expected to last between five and seven days and the trio are now on unconditional bail, allowing Stokes to play for England in New Zealand.
