Stokes to play for Canterbury?

Ben Stokes On His Way To New Zealand

The prodigious all-rounder is now suspended pending a police investigation into an alleged assault which saw him dropped from the national squad for The Ashes series against Australia.

However, it seems the suspension is only for worldwide cricket and Stokes is free to play in New Zealand's domestic competition.

The New Zealand-born 26-year-old has yet to hear whether he will be charged by Avon and Somerset Police.

Canterbury Cricket have been approached for comment but have not responded to RNZ's requests.

There were already indications from the European Central Bank that Stokes will be free to play for the Kings against Otago Volts in the Ford Trophy 50-over competition on Sunday, by the time his prospective New Zealand employers issued a statement confirming "initial informal discussions".

"I'll be sat at home watching and following the lads in the hope they do really well", Stokes said in a video.

After pictures of Stokes at Heathrow airport prompted speculation that the suspended all-rounder could be returning to England for the Ashes in Australia, it was confirmed that he was instead flying to New Zealand.

Stokes was initially named in England's 16-man squad to tour Australia but was quickly stood down from worldwide duty following his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm in Bristol in September.
