Stokes to delay NZ arrival to attend court hearing
Suspended England all-rounder Ben Stokes is to delay his arrival for the country's tour of New Zealand in order to attend his first court hearing into a charge of affray. The 26-year-old Stokes was charged last week after a lengthy investigation into an incident outside a Bristol nightclub last September. While he was included in England's squad for the Ashes tour of Australia and subsequent visit to New Zealand starting next month, he has not been available for selection due to the legal process. An initial hearing was set for Feb. 13 at Bristol Magistrate's Court, six days after England would have started a triangular Twenty20 series with Australia and New Zealand and the same day they are scheduled to play a match in Wellington. "As has been confirmed in the media a first hearing date at court has been set for 13th February," Stokes said on his Twitter page Monday. "In the circumstances, I have decided that it would not be right to join my teammates until after attending court on the 13th." The 26-year-old Stokes, who was born in New Zealand, has not featured for England since the incident but played six matches on a short-term contract with New Zealand side Canterbury last month before returning to England. England also play five one-day internationals and two tests on their tour of New Zealand.
