Vice-captain of the Test side, Stokes chances of keeping the post in the upcoming The Ashes 2017-18 looks bleaker by the day. England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Director of Cricket Andrew Strauss himself confirmed about Stokes arrest post the third One-Day International against West Indies. <strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Stokes arrested; dropped along with Hales for 4th ODI" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ben-stokes-arrested-dropped-along-with-alex-hales-for-4th-odi-against-west-indies-645998">Stokes arrested; dropped along with Hales for 4th ODI</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>According to <em>Dailymail.co.uk</em>, Stokes was involved in a verbal spat that soon turned into t physical fight. The police reports referring to Stokes as 26-year-old, states that an X-Ray took place on his hands, a claim ECB deny. <p></p> <p></p>The incident took place right outside Bristol's late-night Mbargo bar. Stokes has already had his shares of off-field incidences that have tarnished his on-field excellence. With The Ashes squad nearing announcement, Strauss has a lot on his hands. Strauss maintains that players will be selected on bases of fitness and form. <p></p> <p></p>The daily also revealed that Stokes was involved in a late-night outing last month during the South Africa Test series. Stokes partied late till the wee hours of 3 am before returning to the hotel after first days of play in the Manchester Test against South Africa. <p></p> <p></p>As for the Bristol-Brawl case of Stokes, it is unlikely a court hearing will take place in the near future unless charges are pressed against him.
