not playing in the 4th ODI tomorrow..........interesting story developing.
I notice the title of this thread has been changed by the moderators, now correct me if I'm wrong but I always thought "sowing their wild oats" had an entirely different meaning to getting into a fight?!?!?

Also, from what I've read Hales hasn't done anything wrong, not sure his Ashes selection was hindered by his association in this episode.

Whilst i cant condone criminal behaviour i do find it refreshing that we have some characters in the England team...look back over the years at how many top players in many sports, were not the fittest,didnt have the best diet, liked a beer, or smoked, etc....yet they could play !

Agreed, look at Sir Garfield Sobers, the greatest all round cricketer who ever lived............rarely was he in bed before 2am!

It takes 2 to get involved in a fight.

If Stokes cannot be trusted to go clubbing without getting involved in a fight then he should not be playing for England, let alone be vice captain.

Players are role models and are well paid.

I know if I were good enough to play for my country in any sport whatsoever, I would happily stay away from trouble and be an ambassodor for my country.

shame on Stokes, if he is charged he should not be going to australia representing his country.

Don't have an issue with Stokes going out between matches but til 3am during Old Trafford test ain't exactly smart.

Out of interest does the same apply to Joe Root?

If Stokes was sowing his wild oats, I wonder if this will affect his wedding planned in a couple of weeks time !?

Think its good for young blokes to let off steam every now and then.
You get the impression telling Stokes he has to be home by 11am every night would send him mad.
But time for a blow out would be end of the ODI series not 2 days before a sell out game.
I would be surprised though if it was not a case of acting in self defence.
