England all-rounder will not fly to New Zealand before court date


All-rounder Ben Stokes says he will delay his departure to join the England squad in New Zealand until after he appears at Bristol Magistrates' Court on 13 February.

The 28-year-old has been charged with affray after an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September.

The court date coincides with England's first Twenty20 match in New Zealand.

Stokes, who has not played for England since the incident and intends to contest the charge against him, was made available for selection last week by the England and Wales Cricket Board
