Finally, Ben Stokes has been out of all sorts with the judgement falling in his way. Meanwhile, the former legendary England cricketer and skipper, Michael Vaughan wants Stokes to be included straightaway in the ongoing Test series against India.

Just after the court decision going in Stokes’ way, respective England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) added the all-rounder to the 13-member Test squad to face India at Trent Bridge.

Ben Stokes suffered enough punishment: Michael Vaughan

Earlier, Vaughan was the first person to call for a penalty on  Stokes for causing disgrace to the game. However, now, he feels that Stokes has got enough punishment from all corners.

Vaughan feels that missing the Ashes series is a big punishment for the all-rounder. He further added that he has no problem in Stokes being added to the third Test against India.

“I believe he has suffered enough punishment already and the cricket disciplinary case against him. It should take into account the time which he has already served after missing the five Tests and one-day series in Australia,” Vaughan wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph.


“There is no question he brought the game into disrepute. But, cricketers have few opportunities in their lives to play an Ashes series in Australia and missing that tour was a massive blow for Ben. There is no need to keep clobbering him with suspensions. I totally agree with Ben being added to the squad for the third Test on Saturday as long as he feels ready to, which no doubt he does.”

On Ben Stokes, England to resume their disciplinary investigation:

Despite, Stokes being out from the legal charges, he is still under the scanner alongside Alex Hales. The respective board started their investigation before the official case being imposed on him.

The start of legal investigation haled the board’s inquiry which will be resumed now. Stokes might get under the stamp with a huge fine or suspension by the board.

England will take on India in the third Test which will commence on August 18 in Nottingham. Additionally, Michael Vaughan has already predicted the series scoreline in the Three Lions’ favour.
