Here are the official CPS guidelines:


'If following assessment a police decision maker considers there is sufficient evidence to charge a suspect and the case is one which this Guidance requires to be referred to a prosecutor to determine whether the suspect is to be charged the case shall be so referred'.


From that we know this much:


a) The police have concluded there is sufficient evidence to charge Stokes.



b) The charge under consideration is not the lesser offence of common assault, a charge which the police would bring themsleves without reference to the CPS and falls outside the 'guidance' mentioned above, but is almost certainly the more serious charge of ABH.


c) The only grounds on which the CPS will not procede with a prosecution is if either (i) they assess that they are unlikely to secure a guilty verdict in court (based not so much on the police evidence but by assessing what the defence case might be and taking a judgment on whether it might convince a jury) or (ii) they conclude that a prosecution is against the public interest.

Although according to our resident expert on here, Canterbury were going to decline to select him, so at least him playing is something.

A fractured eye socket is no small matter and my understanding is that now makes a charge of common assault impossible.

Stokes will take no part in this Ashes series - which I accepted as inevitable the moment I saw that video.

Canterbury will also now decline to select him and I'd guess he will be flying back to the UK fairly shortly...
Selected for the ODI series

Much as I am delighted to see Stokes in the ODI squad it does rather contradict the ECB stance that he is not available for selection until the CPS decide whether they are going to charge him with ABH. On that note are we expecting a decision this side of Christmas?

10-0-56-1 with the ball too. He’s not exactly tearing it up is he?

He's an odd one, he never seems to do that well for Durham either when he does play these days. I mean you can understand if he's a bit distracted at the minute but I do wonder if he needs a big stage to really focus himself in general.

No mention of the fact Stokes smacked 93 off 47 balls yesterday in a T20 Match (also took 1-17 in 2 overs)......looks like he's over his jetlag then.

Was always going to take a couple of games to get the rust off.

If the CPS don't go ahead then he should be back in for the ODI series and definitely NZ.
