Getting UK cricket a bad name or just having fun?

The jury is still out but the 'evidence ' provided by bystanders and others involved has put Ben Stokes in the box and it's beginning to look nasty and very ugly.

I saw the CCTV footage and he was out of control it's amazing he didn't kill someone...was he on steroids or something? It was so violent.

I'm not sure we do want someone who loses control to that extent representing us.

I saw the footage also Summer an completely agree..
We don't need thugs representing us.
Out of control was an understatement....he looked feral.

A heavy custodial sentence and dropped from England team permanently. Expect excuses will made and he will be back in the team after a suitable time has passed.

Look on the bright side ladies, he may be a violent hooligan, but at least he didn't cheat when playing cricket!

You assume too much Gummy! I like neither violence or cheating, but at least we cannot be sure that the violence was premeditated...... the cheating certainly was

Looks possible he could be playing on Saturday.
The worry now is that he may be singled out and targeted, his Achilles heel is alcohol, to provoke a violent attack.
