Cricketer Ben Stokes mocked gay men before fight: court

Cricketer Ben Stokes mocked gay men before fight: court

Also, Kohli was named No. 1 Test batsman replacing Steven Smith in ICC Test rankings.

This time the Indian captain didn't, though he had just crossed fifty, and umpire Aleem Dar raised his left-hand index finger the moment the ball missed Kohli's bat, though the replay showed the ball was hitting just the leg stump and that was good enough to seal India's fate. It was only after successive losses in the first two Tests, that Rahane was brought back and contributed to India winning the third and final Test at Johannesburg.Pujara, who came in at one-down, also played a crucial role in Team India's win by keeping the South African pace squad at bay on a very hard pitch. "It was hard to bat, probably more hard than it looked from outside", Bayliss said.

All said and done, plenty of cricket still to be played.

The cricketer Ben Stokes mocked two gay men, "mimicking their voices and mannerisms in a derogatory manner", in an exchange captured on CCTV, Bristol crown court has heard.

"I don't think it's any different for us".

If it is any relief for the Indians, the all-rounder will not be there for the second Test at Lord's as it clashes with his trial on a charge of affray in Bristol that starts on Monday, Chris Woakes comes in for him.

Melania Trump backs National Basketball Association star LeBron James after Trump insults

He also said that Pandya should be batting at No 6 in the current Indian batting line-up. But in that time they were playing against the white ball. Virat made that adjustment, the others didn't. With the off-spinner Ashwin making an impact while opening the bowling, the additional choice of Kuldeep Yadav could have put England on the back foot, especially given the fact that the likes of Cook, Jennings, Malan and Sam Curran had not been included in the eleven for the ODI and T20 series and had not played him before. Why have you gone to England - to play cricket or something else? "With the ball, Curran was superb too, returning career-best figures of 4/74 in the first dig to shave off India's top order", Hussain told Sky Sports.

Virat Kohli has established himself as one of the greats of modern cricket. "This Test (loss) will be a learning experience for Kohli". I believe in this team because I believe that they have the ability.

"He changed the course of two innings. On occasion, it can make people nervous I dare say, but on the whole, it animates them", he added. After this, Joe Root and Alastair Cook have always been an impactful player. "But there is something ruthless about Kohli and he converts all those fifties into hundreds", Brearley told today.

Kai Barry and William O'Connor said they were "grateful" to Stokes, who stepped up to help them from getting beaten up, and also called the England all-rounder a "real hero".

That apart, India took 20 wickets again in a Test outside Asia - they had taken all 60 in South Africa - and the slip catching was more good than it was bad. When the ball's moving, we've shown that a few of their guys do struggle against the moving ball.

There is a school of thought that their ranking can not be taken seriously until they have won a major series on opposition soil and here, surely, had been the chance to go about doing it.
