Ben Stokes looks set to miss the Ashes tour of Australia after being suspended by England

"If that video is what they are going on, then Ben Stokes is a bit of a hero for me", said cricketer Graeme Swann.

England Squad: Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, James Vince, Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Gary Ballance, Jake Ball, Craig Overton, Mason Crane, Ben Foakes.

Test vice-captain Stokes was included in England's Ashes squad announced Wednesday, despite reportedly injuring his hand in the incident that led to his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

"On the pitch I don't see whatever gets thrown at him being an issue to be honest", Roland-Jones told the BBC. Stokes, who has suffered a broken finger on his right hand, remains under investigation after being released by police.

"Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be considered for selection for England worldwide matches until further notice", said an England and Wales Cricket Board statement.

Stokes and Alex Hales are missing the social trip to the Netherlands as they are due in for further police questioning in the coming days.

Katie Price has blasted cricket star Ben Stokes after a video emerged of him "mocking" her disabled son Harvey.

"Hello you c***", Stokes adds.

And his latest muck up will certainly hurt his case after Stokes was filmed imitating Harvey Price, the 15-year-old son of United Kingdom model Katie Price, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome. Stokes has been left out of England's team for the one-day global against West Indies on Wednesday in the wake of the incident on early Monday, which took place in Bristol after an ODI there.

Kevin Pietersen is not one to shy away from giving his opinion, no matter who it might offend.

Media reports said Stokes, who suffered a minor fracture of a finger on his right hand, had apologised to the European Central Bank for his arrest and described his state of mind as "fragile and devastated".
