Stokes thanked

The Dominion Post - - Sport | Family Notices -

Ben Stokes may have been handed an Ashes life­line, with two gay men com­ing for­ward to praise him for de­fend­ing them against abuse. The all­rounder has been sus­pended by Eng­land since he was caught on video last month punch­ing two men out­side a night­club in Bris­tol. There had been re­ports he had been com­ing to the aid of two gay men, and Kai Barry and Billy O’Con­nell have told The Sun they are grate­ful to Stokes for step­ping in to de­fend them. ‘‘He was a real hero,’’ O’Con­nell said.
