Ben Stokes appears before Magistrates’ Court to answer charges of affray
Ben Stokes will face trial over his part in a fight outside a Bristol nightclub last September, but the England all-rounder pleaded not guilty to affray on Tuesday (Feb 13). The first hearing in the trial has been scheduled for March 12. Stokes will now travel to New Zealand to join up with England ahead of the remaining fixtures in a Twenty20 tri-series against the ‘Black Caps’ and Australia. (Video: SNTV).
