England vs India 2018: Ben Stokes Should Walk into Playing XI – Vaughan
Former England skipper Michael Vaughan believes that Ben Stokes should walk into the side’s playing XI. However, Vaughan believes that Stokes brought the game into disrepute. But he also thinks that Stokes has already suffered as he missed the Ashes. Furthermore, Stokes also didn’t play the ODI series in Australia.
Meanwhile, Stokes makes the cut to the England squad for the third Test match. In fact, Stokes might take Adil Rashid’s place as the hosts can play with two all-rounders in the side.
Stokes has already suffered enough punishment.
On the other hand, Stokes has already suffered quite a lot and finally found peace yesterday. England all-rounder was given a green chit by the court. Meanwhile, the ECB will once again look into the behaviour of Ben Stokes and Alex Hales on the night of the Bristol brawl.
“I believe he has suffered enough punishment already. The cricket disciplinary case against him should take into account the time he has already served after missing the five Tests and one-day series in Australia,” Vaughan wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph.
Meanwhile, Vaughan also believes that Ben Stokes also brought the game into disrepute with his actions. However, he has gone through a lot of mental pressure in the last one year. Thus, there is no need to impose more suspension and ban upon him.
“There is no question he brought the game into disrepute but cricketers have few opportunities in their lives to play an Ashes series in Australia and missing that tour was a massive blow for Ben. There is no need to keep clobbering him with suspensions”.
In fact, Michael Vaughan also agrees to the fact that Ben Stokes is added to the third Test match squad as he is ready to get on with cricket.
“I totally agree with Ben being added to the squad for the third Test on Saturday as long as he feels ready to, which no doubt he does.”
The third Test match takes place at Trent Bridge, Nottingham from 18 September.
