England Cricket’s vice-captain Ben Stokes suffered a mighty blow previous month as he was arrested late night fighting with two men in Bristol close to the Mbargo nightclub. The video footage shows, Stokes throwing at least 15 punches in a minute to the unknown men around. Another star English cricketer Alex Hales was along with Stokes during the Bristol-Brawl.
Before this news could spread all around, English Cricket Board (ECB) themselves suspended Ben Stokes and Alex Hales from the remaining 2-ODI matches of the series against West Indies. The All-Rounder’s absence was not felt very much at that time as off-shade West Indies were easily controllable.
The question which arose in mind of very of the cricket fan around was about Stokes inclusion for the Ashes 2017-18. What followed up was nothing more than speculations as ECB wasn’t hasty to take any step in this regard.
The news to come earlier this month made clear that the star cricketer, who is often compared to Sir Ian Botham for his brilliance with both bat and ball won’t be part of this much awaited Ashes series.
As expected, the star English cricketer who is known for his aggression on the field won’t be pleased with all this going around. But there’s nothing he could do in this helpless situation.
Finally, there arrived something for his consolation as he along with fellow cricketer made it to Jason Roy’s wedding ceremony in France. Since Brawl incident arrest and release, there was no clue where the star the left-handed all-rounder has been but his photos from Roy’s marriage ceremony would actually work as icing on the cake for his fans.
It should be noted here that the photos emerging and the probation into the incident made Alex Hales stand net and clean as he wasn’t involved in any kind of fight that night.
Talking about Jason Roy’s marriage, several members of English cricket team, namely, Joe Root, Sam Billings, Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan were part of the prestigious event along with Ben Stokes. In the photos emerged from the sight, Stokes can be seen wearing a bandage on the hand. It will be pertinent to mention here that, the reports around after Brawl incident told that Stokes had injured his hand with throwing 15 punches in one minute during the fight in Bristol.
Seeing all this, many of the cricket-lovers have sympathies for the star cricketer but some condemn the act of the cricketer as they believe it isn’t the very first time for Stokes to misconduct.
It will be pertinent to mention here that few of the reliable news outlets revealed that the fight ignited after the harsh men were abusing the LGBT people.
The photos emerging from the get together during Roy’s marriage shows Stokes holding a cigarette. And the worst thing is people are even making this a mess.
