Ben Stokes anticipated return to the crease failed with bat for Canterbury

Vastavam web: Suspended England star Ben Stokes’s highly anticipated return to the crease was over almost as soon as it began in New Zealand today.Playing in a limited overs match for his birth province Canterbury against Otago, Stokes only faced seven balls before he was bowled for two.But while England are playing before a 55,000-plus crowd in the second Ashes Test against Australia in Adelaide, Stokes turned out for Canterbury at a village ground on the outskirts of Christchurch with a crowd of about 1,000.
Canterbury, batting first, were in trouble at three down for eight when Stokes was bowled.Stokes is currently banned from international cricket while British authorities probe his alleged involvement in a late-night fight outside a Bristol nightclub.
