England vice-captain Ben Stokes was recently arrested in Bristol on September 25 for being involved in a fight. The England and Wales Cricket Board on September 26, dropped Stokes from the 4th ODI at The Oval.
While the incident reflects poorly on the renowned international cricketer, a video of Stokes “15 punches in 1 minute” has gone viral on social media.
Stokes is seen in the video pummeling a few men, eventually knocking one of them out, after what seemed to have been an argument gone south.
Meanwhile, Alex Hales, who was also present with Stokes that night has also been dropped and is reported to have been assisting the police with the investigation.
Stokes, however, has been included in the Ashes squad for England. His performance could hold the key to England’s success against the Aussies.
