Hussain hails 'unassuming, down-to-earth, very pleasant' Stokes

Michael Vaughan who has forged a successful career as a pundit since retiring from the crease said the 27-year-old New Zealand-born star Ben Stokes had been punished enough over the 11 months since a late-night excursion in Bristol following a one-day

Stokes has already missed six Test matches, including last week's at Lord's, which clashed with his court case, and 11 limited-overs fixtures for England, as a result of the night out in Bristol.

Within two hours of the end of the case, England announced that the all-rounder was being added to the 13-man squad for the third Test against India at Trent Bridge, from which he had been omitted the previous day. They could decide to attack me at any time if I was to turn my back on either of these two.

He pointed out Stokes has already apologised to his team-mates, in New Zealand last winter when he rejoined them after having to miss the Ashes while a criminal charge was being considered following the incident which took place during a one-day global series against West Indies.

The ECB are reviewing the wider issues surrounding Stokes' conduct and looking at the extent of which he has brought the game into disrepute, given his privileged and role model position in society. However, his replacement at Lord's Chris Woakes marked a memorable return to Test cricket with a maiden hundred and four wickets in the match.

Hussain, however, urged ECB's Cricket Discipline Commission to set an example during the internal hearing and not take "the easy option". "Although Stokes was never formally suspended from the England team, his non-selection for the Ashes came about clearly as a result of the events in Bristol".

The 27-year old may have breathed a sigh of relief after having been declared not guilty at the Bristol Crown Court on Tuesday, but Nasser Hussain still wants him to "have hard look at himself". That'll be up to Ben and his management team, I suppose.

"The very best cricketers often ooze invincibility; they are never out and never wrong", wrote Marks.

Despite voicing his support for Stokes' return to the Test match fold, Vaughan says the England all-rounder "needs to grow up".

"I have witnessed this at close quarters when playing alongside Ian Botham".

On Stokes' recall to the squad, the Australian continued: "It was a collective decision".

"He's just gone through eight days in crown court". Myself, the management, the captain, Andy Flower, the board - everyone had a bit of a say and basically thought for his (Stokes') own well-being it was good to get him back around the cricket.
