The Ben Stokes saga took another twist on late Monday night when all-rounder was spotted at the Heathrow airport with his cricket kit.
Many had speculated the English all-rounder was on his way to Australia to join the England team which is trailing 0-1, as they lost the first Test at the Gabba. Stokes is under investigation for causing actual bodily harms to a 27-year old man outside a bar after England’s win against the Windies in Bristol.
Stokes was arrested by the police next day but was released and is still under investigation for the incidence and has been suspended by the ECB for any further selection in international cricket.
However, reports have now come out that Stokes was on his way to New Zealand to spend some family time, but if he gets the permission by any domestic side, he may play in the domestic season, as he was born in New Zealand.
