England cricketer Ben Stokes leaves Bristol Crown Court where he is on trial accused of affray

Owing to this court case, Stokes had missed the second Test at Lord's, which England won by an innings and 159 runs to take a 2-0 series lead.

But that could also depend on whether ECB's Cricket Disciplinary Commission decide to award cricket-related punishments to Stokes, and Alex Hales who was also involved in the incident a year ago.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes is set to miss the third Test against India regardless of the outcome of his trial for affray at Bristol Crown Court.

Stokes' England team-mate Jonny Bairstow, one of several players who were out with Stokes earlier that evening, said it was great news on both a personal and sporting front.

Apparently, the incident only brought the Trump's administration's Office of Public Liaison under further scrutiny. "Goddamn it. And that, she said, is more evidence of how Trump treats black people.

Ben Stokes has been recalled to the England squad for the third Test against India at Trent Bridge after being found not guilty of affray.

Kai Barry said that the incident had begun because "someone came across the road and tried to hit me with a bottle".

The England and Wales Cricket Board said it "will make an assessment of Ben Stokes' availability after the trial in Bristol has concluded".

He described his co-accused as "aggressive and violent" towards himself, Mr Hales, Mr Barry and Mr O'Connor and denied he had "overexaggerated the exchange" in order to "justify his own violent behaviour".

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway also questioned Manigault Newman's credibility in an interview Sunday on ABC's This Week. The Daily Beast reports , "One person confirmed ... they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump".

Barry added: "I thought he was just a normal lad, you know, sticking up for someone who was weaken than he was, which was quite nice". Mr Stokes then allegedly knocked Mr Ali to the floor. "We're here to concentrate on the cricket and I'm sure that's what he'll want to get back to as soon as possible".

"I felt under threat by these two and felt I had to do whatever it was to keep myself and others around me safe", Stokes said.

Some 200 of their closest friends and family were at the church service to see the happy couple tie the knot, with their children Libby, two, and Layton, four, acting as flower girl and page boy. Mr Hale was found not guilty last week of affray by the jury on direction of the judge.

Ali suffered a fractured eye socket and Hale was concussed after being punched by Stokes.
