Bristol - The jury retired to consider its verdict on Tuesday in the trial of England cricket star all-rounder Ben Stokes.

Stokes and Ryan Ali, both 27, are being tried for affray over a brawl that erupted in Bristol, southwest England, in the early hours of September 25 last year.

Stokes's career has been on hold during the trial - meaning he missed England's second Test victory over India at Lord's - and he was omitted form the squad for the third Test which gets underway next Saturday. 

A brief statement issued by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said they would review Stokes's position following the conclusion of the trial.
