STOKES FLAMES Ben Stokes video: England cricket star faces axe after shocking video shows him punching TWO people in street fight


There are calls for him to be cut from the tour to Australia and Stokes is said to be”fragile” and “devastated” after his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

According to the BBC, the video has been scrutinised by the highest reaches of the England and Wales Cricket Board and they will make a decision over the next course of action.

The fight went on for over a minute and one of his colleagues can be heard saying: “That’s enough Stokesy.”

Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen tweeted: “Before I go to bed, I have a comment on England’s Ashes squad – it’s horrendous! They may as well not go!”

He later added: “Oh no! Just seen tomorrow’s front page and video! Cancel England’s flights please!

“I actually really feel sorry for Root, Cook, Anderson, Broad! Now I’m going to bed!”
