    If Pietersen was sacked by Strauss for being a bad influence where does that leave Stokes?

    Mike Gatting lost the captaincy for inviting a barmaid to visit his hotel room.
    Botham banned for admitting he had smoked cannabis.
    Flintoff lost the vice-captaincy for getting on the turps and falling out of a pedal boat.
    Is Stokes so valuable to English cricket that his behaviour will be ignored?
    If he does make the Ashes tour he will get a very warm reception here.

    I suspect he is about to be cleared of all charges and then should really be on the next plane out.

    I believe a court would see his behaviour as all legitimate self defence against a weaponised assault.
