Stokes, Hales await decision
Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will learn this week whether they face punishment from England cricket chiefs over bringing the game into disrepute. Stokes was cleared of affray charges earlier this year, after a trial in relation to an incident outside a club in Bristol in September 2017.
Hales was with Stokes at the time of the incident, but faced no criminal charges. The England board’s Cricket Discipline Commission could impose fines or suspensions on either or both players.
