Stokes charged with bringing game into disrepute: ECB

Stokes


London:Ben Stokes and Alex Hales have been charged with bringing the game into disrepute by the England and Wales Cricket Board following a late-night altercation last year.
The independent Cricket Discipline Commission was tasked with leading an internal disciplinary into last September’s incident after Stokes was found not guilty of affray following a trial last month.
The England pair will have to answer to two counts of breaching ECB Directive 3.3, which states: “No participant may conduct themself in a manner or do any act or omission at any time which may be prejudicial to the interests of cricket or which may bring the ECB, the game of cricket or any cricketer or group of cricketers into disrepute.”
