England probe Bairstow-Bancroft clash

England's Moeen Ali was ruled out stumped in controversial fashion a decision that was derided by many fans and pundits. Reuters

Bairstow is now facing questions over his behaviour just months after Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were involved in an early-hours brawl after a night out in Bristol.

Prior also opined that what Bairstow is accused of doing is nothing like David Warner' infamous run-in with Joe Root in 2013. "Both Bancroft's group and the England players continued drinking together at the Avenue bar in Perth".

The England and Wales Cricket Board has said that it has spoken to Bairstow after claims about an alleged incident involving Bancroft.

The comments, which centred around the pair telling Bairstow "we know what you did to our mate in Perth" might have contributed towards a careless stroke from one of England's best batsmen as they crashed to near defeat.

Fox Sports News reported that the incident happened four weeks ago at the start of the tour of Australia.

England wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow headbutted Australian opener Cameron Bancroft in a Perth nightclub.

It's understood Bancroft only told teammates of the incident in the past few days and has accepted an apology from Bairstow. It will "follow up" with players after the conclusion of the first Ashes Test.

Another Kashmiri soldier kidnapped and killed
Mehbooba's predecessor and opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah termed the incident as tragic and reprehensible. Srinagar: an army jawan was snatched and killed by suspected militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district.

England go into the final day of the first Ashes 2017-18 Test with just 56 runs to defend on the final day with Australia having all their 10 wickets intact. "They are the ones who have come up with this".

'There has been no report of any incident from the venue, security or police and there was no injury reported, ' said the European Central Bank statement.

The matter has not been pursued by Bancroft, but Bairstow was given a big send-off by a couple of Australian players when he departed meekly to virtually end England's hopes of posting a competitive target.

"They say Bairstow and Bancroft knocked heads while grappling rugby-style in a non-aggressive manner".

The players compiled a code of conduct at the start of this tour in an attempt to avoid any repeat of the Bristol incident that has cast such a cloud on this tour but at the same time management were determined to carry on treating the players as adults.

Whether the European Central Bank deem the Bairstow episode to be worthy of further action or not, it will inevitably lead to renewed questions about the freedom afforded to England players, particularly in light of the Stokes affair.
