That's always going to make it difficult for the batsmen.

I have a question for those keen cricket watchers amongst us:

In a situation like today when play is over by 1pm on a Saturday - do the bars in the ground stay open for the rest of the day?

Yes, but you get various refunds on your ticket depending on how many overs bowled. I believe if 30 overs are bowled it is considered a full days play.

I suspect the boys will be more worried about the bar closing than the possibility of refunds. Sorrows need to be drowned.

Not required. The ECB show they have a pair of balls and reinstate a not guilty member of their squad.

Thought it was a bit strange that we didn't hear any testimony from the two gay lads.

Not raping somebody is worse than not assaulting someone.

In D4 not raping someone is worse than actually assaulting someone.

I did as well. Was thinking their testimony would be key given how on one hand stokes was abusing them while defending them on the other. Tbh from the cctv footage I thought he would have got done but again we didn't get to see the entire incident.

I don't think the 2 guys would have done the defence much good. The interview I saw with them said -to paraphrase - it all kicked off, I was scared.

As this was an affray charge (not an assault charge) the fewer people who were scared by the actions of the accused; the better for their defence.

Perhaps they didn't want to.

To me they sounded like they wanted Stokes to get off. If their testimony helped the prosecution (even if primarily that of the co-accused) they have been reluctant witnesses.
