Ben Stokes could miss Lord's Test against India

The 26-year-old appeared at Bristol Magistrates Court last month before flying out to New Zealand, from where he entered his plea to Bristol Crown Court via video link on Monday.

Even the hearing of Ryan Hale and Ryan Ali, the men with whom Stokes will involved in an altercation, will take place at the same time.

The trial is expected to last between five and seven days, which means there is a risk Mr Stokes could miss the second test which starts at Lord's Cricket Ground on 9 August.

The powerful all-rounder, now with the England squad in New Zealand, looks set to miss the second Test against India at Lord's, with his trial set for August 6. They were also strongly advised to provide defence statements, setting out in detail their case, by May 22.

"You will remain on bail as before until August 6".

Whitaker has been an England selector for the past 10 years, while he has fulfilled the role of National Selector since 2013, where he has overseen four Ashes series wins.

Stokes, Ali and Hale are jointly charged with affray in the Clifton Triangle area of Bristol on September 25 previous year.

The charge states that their "conduct was such as would cause a person of reasonable firmness present at the scene to fear for his personal safety".

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced that he would travel to New Zealand to join the squad after the court hearing. India are set to tour England for five Tests, three ODIs and as many T20Is.

As a result of the charge, Mr Stokes missed the Ashes series, which hosts Australia won 4-0, although he was allowed to play some domestic matches in New Zealand.
