Katie Price slams England cricketer Ben Stokes for mocking her disabled son

Stokes' Ashes dream alive

The England board have clamped down on player behaviour following the incident but it might already prove costly for them as Stokes is nursing an injury concern which puts his participation in the all-important Ashes tour doubtful despite he was named in the squad.

Stokes missed England's final 2 ODIs against West Indies following his arrest in Bristol following the pub brawl.

Neither Hales, who returned voluntarily to Bristol on Tuesday to give further evidence to police about the incident, nor Stokes were selected for Wednesday's six-run win over West Indies in the fourth one-day global at The Oval that gave England an unbeatable 3-0 series lead.

Stokes - who was suspended by England on Thursday, a day after video footage was published by the Sun newspaper of the incident - was released without charge on Monday but remains under investigation. "Ben did have an X-ray yesterday (Tuesday)", said Strauss. "There are obviously more tests that need to be done, but the early indications are that he should be fit to play a full part in all the Ashes Test matches". Days after his arrest over assault outside the a bar in Bristol, Stokes' drunk video mocking actress and model Katie Price's differently-abled son Harvey has been doing the rounds on social media. Stokes had made a Snapchat video which is now going viral and is believed to have been recorded before England vs New Zealand ICC Champions Trophy 2017 fixture. Moreover, Stokes is just one on-field offence away from incurring a potential two-Test ban under the International Cricket Council's code of conduct. If he [Stokes] is not there we are going to have to play well.




Moeen Ali insists England can win next month's Ashes series with or without their vice-captain Ben Stokes.

There were Ashes recalls this week for middle-order batsmen James Vince and Gary Ballance despite the pair's struggles during their previous Test stints.

That followed a prolific Test series against South Africa were he became the first player to score 250 runs and take 25 wickets in a four-match series. With just 54 days until the first Test in Brisbane and Stokes and Hales banned while subject to what is understood will be a protracted European Central Bank disciplinary investigation, England's management are already planning to be without their talisman in Australia.

Although the Joe Root-led side are Ashes holders they have lost two out of their past three tours Down Under by 5-0.
