Ben Stokes was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after a nightclub incident in Bristol. It is said that the England all-rounder will be dropped for Wednesday's one-day international against West Indies.
He was held overnight after England’s 124-run victory. Despite his arrest, he is still set to be included in the England team for the Ashes tour of Australia.
England batsman Alex Hale who was with Stokes on the Sunday night will also miss Wednesday’s match.
As cited by AFP, a statement issued by Avon and Somerset police said: "We were called to a disorder in Queens Road, Clifton, at around 2:35am (0135 GMT) on Monday.
"A 27-year-old man was found to have suffered facial injuries and was taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary for treatment.
"A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and has since been released under investigation."
The England director of cricket Andrew Strauss mentioned: "Selectors have been instructed to select the Ashes squad based on form and fitness as they normally would do.” This implies that these batsmen would be considered on cricketing grounds alone.
England ODI captain Eoin Morgan told BBC Sport: “It has been a little bit of a distraction. As a group we are strong at sticking together and working well as a team. It has the potential to affect the game but not letting that happen is something we will strive to do.”
