Really wasn't expecting that, the inconsistency is bizarre. If he's suspended due to being under police investigation then he should be suspended while awaiting trial, whatever you think of the rights and wrongs. They'll look bloody silly if he flies out to NZ and then has to fly straight back again when the court date gets announced.

Strauss has been making (No Swearing Please) decisions since the day he started the job I'm afraid. If he's not mentally fit to be making decisions properly at the moment then that's understandable, but then he should be on leave surely.

Being reported that because the legal proceedings could technically take up to 18 months suspending him for up to that long could leave the ECB liable to legal action for restraint of trade.

I'm no lawyer now, but Stokes has been suspended, likely on full pay, and is also free to ply his trade elsewhere (Canterbury/IPL/Durham etc) during his England suspension. Please explain where the restraint of trade is?

That's an article with a hatred of the ECB I'd even I read it! It's fantasy stuff, Stokes has years ahead of him with an ECB contract, yes he has made money from the IPL but players want the contract for England. Plus.....has anyone seriously who has watched him play ever doubted his commitment to England? I havnt, if anything it's his full on personality and never backing down that may have got him in bother off the pitch.
What possible reason could he have to sue the ECB?
If you read vic marks in the guardian today it's a far more balanced report about the whole thing.

Yes it's completely inconsistent what they have done but the have got to the right decision now despite of it. A court case could take all year to sort out, he can't stop playing for a year? What if he is found innocent, missed the whole ashes and New Zealand and the summer!

The ECB have not handled this well no argument there  :) what else could they do now knowing a court case could take ages

If the case in in the NZ tour he is going to have to come back and face the music.

Media like to stir things up, my guess is Stokes has a decent relationship with the ECB, he's got himself in trouble and will have to take what's coming, he is not he first sportsman to end up in trouble

So, he's entered a not guilty plea. I wonder what he can do to make himself look less of a thug?? ...shave his head... Yeah... That should work... 🤦‍♂️
