Canterbury ponders Ben Stokes induction

Canterbury ponders Ben Stokes induction

"Ben is allowed by the Avon and Somerset police to leave the country".

European Central Bank sources indicated a board meeting would be convened within 48 hours of any police decision, with the CDC probably delivering their verdict and punishment at the same time. But it could be months before his case was heard and the temptation would be to allow him to play cricket again before he appears in court. But fans are still hoping that Stokes makes it to the squad when England take on Australia for the first ever day-and-night Ashes Test which starts from November 2, especially with the visitors suffering a heavy 10-wicket loss in the first Test at Gabba.

It means Andrew Strauss, the team director, has a tricky balancing act.

But the coaching staff think that to compete with Australia, they need Stokes on board.

England's contortions over the matter have dominated the news agenda in Australia.

Navajo Nation President on Trump's 'Pocahontas' Quip: 'Inappropriate' to Use 'Racial Slur'
And as if all this weren't insult enough, Oglala Lakota journalist and Native Sun News Today publisher Tim Giago cited Trump's tone of voice.

The news late on Monday night that he is flying to New Zealand to spend time with family while also getting his eye in playing for Canterbury, was accompanied by scores of WWE-related gifs mimicking him walking out to bat at some stage in this Ashes series.

The Daily Telegraph says that with his flying visit to New Zealand, and the Canterbury side, Stokes could return to playing cricket as early as this weekend. The ECB made a decision to ban Stokes from representing his country while he is under police investigation for the street fight in Bristol, which took place more than two months ago. It later confirmed Stokes, whose parents live in Christchurch, was travelling independently of the board.

"And the calibre of player and the calibre of person that Ben Stokes is, he wouldn't be the player he is if he didn't have a burning desire to get the best out of himself".

British media reported the England and Wales Cricket Board had provided a no objection certificate required to clear Stokes to play in New Zealand, but were yet to decide whether their star player will feature in the five-test Ashes series as they await a police decision on whether he is charged.

And that is the problem.

Grizzlies head coach, David Fizdale, reportedly fired
Bickerstaff, who was 37-34 as an interim coach with the Rockets in 2015-16, has been promoted to interim head coach. Get the app and get the game. "You take it personal", Gasol told reporters following the loss.

United Kingdom newspaper The Times is reporting police are likely to announce within 48 hours the outcome of their investigation into Stokes' involvement in a brawl outside a Bristol nightclub.

Alastair Cook was among the names listed by Lyon as threats and, after a concerning first Test that saw him nick off for two and then be suckered into a pull shot on seven in the second innings, the former captain netted alone at the ground during a rest day for England.

But when asked about his immediate plans after arriving at Christchurch Airport, Stokes said on Wednesday, according to news service stuff.co.nz: "Just looking forward to seeing Mum and Dad, to be honest, and the family as well".

"I thought England played well at times [at the Gabba] but, certainly, when the wicket quickened up, it played in our favour".
