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.

At Bristol Crown Court on Monday, Mr Stokes denied the charges via video link from New Zealand where he is on duty with the England squad.

A 27-year-old man allegedly suffered a fractured eye socket in the incident, at which fellow England cricketer Alex Hales was also present. The first of five Tests starts in Birmingham on August 1.

Stokes, 26, wearing a grey shirt, said "Hi judge" when he was introduced to Judge Peter Blair via the video link.

In the first half, the game gave us the opportunity to be direct, fast and score goals, more than we did. Marcus Rashford insists he has not been fazed by his spell out of the Manchester United team.

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.

Stokes and Hales will also face an European Central Bank disciplinary hearing once the criminal proceedings have concluded.
