England v West Indies - 3rd Royal London One Day International

Internet Desk: England all-rounders Ben Stokes and Alex Hales have been suspended by the England and Wales Cricket Board for the last two One Day Internationals against West Indies. Both of them were arrested by the police in Bristol and held overnight following an altercation with a member of the public on Sunday after England’s win over Windies in the third One-Day International, and later released without charges, it emerged on Tuesday (September 26).

According to a statement released by ECB, “Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be available for tomorrow’s One-Day International match against West Indies at The Oval. Stokes was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning, 25 September, following an incident in Bristol.

“He was held overnight and released under investigation – without charge – late on Monday and will not join the team in London.

“Hales, who was with Stokes on Sunday night, did not train this morning and has returned voluntarily to Bristol today to help police with their enquiries. You will understand that we cannot offer further detail at this stage but will provide any updates when we can.”

England lead the five-match series 2-0 after three games, with the second one abandoned after just 2.2 overs of action following persistent rain. The fourth ODI will be played at The Oval in London on Wednesday, with the final fixture to be held at Southampton’s Rose Bowl on Friday.
