England and Wales Cricket Board have said Ben Stokes and Alex Hales won't be considered for selection in the England side untile further notice.

The decisions comes after a video footage was released by The Sun newspaper which shows Stokes and Hales in a quarrel with two other individuals outside a nightclub in Bristol. The video ends with Stokes punching one of the man to the ground and slapping the others across the face.

Following the footage, Stokes was arrested by the police. His arrest meant he has been released from the England squad for the remaining ODIS.

Earlier in the summer, Stokes was warned about his behaviour following a late night out drinking during test series against SA.
