Anyone expecting the ECB to essentially double  Stokes' 'ban'/absence? They stated they can't stop him from playing in the IPL, so could be theoretically be absent for one full year from the date of the original incident

Stokes has made a reply on Twitter explaining, he looks forward to the full story coming out in court basically.

I know this doesn't mean he's not going to plead guilty but sounds like he still has more to say about the situation!

No I think the ecb will ban him but take into account the ashes as part of it

Strauss and Harrison talked about support for him, a central contract withdrawal maybe ? If he is found guilty or admits guilt

Be amazed if anymore than a fine, basically the lesser of any charge with the highest possible guilty outcome to save face for the Police and court system on a high profile case.
He should have kept his s*** in order but missing the Ashes and having to have this hang over for 4 months is punishment enough in my opinion. Whole thing is a bit of a joke. Yea the guy got a broken eye socket or whatever but he wasn't exactly little boy blue in all this either.

Yes looks that way. in a ironic kind of way the video may help him. That's in the public domain and was immediately after the event.

you would hope as a cricket fan he is available for the New Zealand tour, or at least the case is dealt with by then.

I cannot see myself the ECB stopping him playing any further although I'm sure there will be a punishment should he be found guilty.

this event started a tour which turned out badly on and off the field, whatever the ECB say we were knocked off kilter by the incident. We may well of lost the Ashes anyway, but it put a downer on the tour before it started.

IMO hes trained and paid to know better and avoid these situations.  Yes thats the price you have to pay.

Disappointed he wasnt here in Australia. 

I presume in UK, like here in Australia, hell pay disproportionately ( hasnt he already?)  to others as he has profile.

Whats the UK media coverage been like?
