Ben Stokes has certainly been involved in a few interesting incidents in the past but he is still only 25 and I'd certainly hope and believe that the added responsibility of leadership roles within the set up would help him mature further. To accuse someone, who at 21 years of age stood up to Mitchell Johnson at Perth and scored a 100 whilst older, more senior players crumbled around him of having "no bottle" is also an interesting take on him!
Well, there are facts and there are alternative facts. If I were attacked by somebody in a bar, I don't think I would necessarily consider that I'd 'been in an actual fight'. That phrase implies a degree of mutual consent.
