Barry and O'Connell told The Sun that they met Stokes and his England teammate, Alex Hales, in the Mbargo nightclub, following an England one-day win over the West Indies last month.

O'Connell said the pair "were so grateful to Ben for stepping in to help". He was a real hero. Barry feared he could be attacked.

"Apparently people thought we didn't exist and that the story about Ben defending two gay men was made-up".

"We are grown men, we know how to behave and we'll make sure we conduct ourselves well on this tour", the 26 year old added. "We've played some really strong cricket this summer, coming together really well as a squad and hopefully we can carry that forward", he said. "Ben was a real gentleman", Barry said.

Chris Woakes says England are ready for the intensity of an Ashes series in Australia as they look to retain the urn this winter. With the first Test scheduled to begin at The Gabba on November 23, it remains to be seen if the game-changer returns to the fray in the coming days.

Mogadishu hit with hotel attack two weeks after deadly truck bombing
A roadside explosion hit a minibus carrying passengers, 36km south of Mogadishu , on October 22, killing at least 11 people. The US military has increased its targeting of al Shabaab this year with nearly 20 drone strikes against the terror group.

Remarking over this, the Right-handed batsman said, "It's an ongoing investigation".

Stokes was a big part of the England team that beat South Africa away from home in 2015/16 in conditions similar to those found in Australia and was set to play a massive role. Ben was incredible for standing up for us like that. But at the same time it's two teams battling hard against each other to win the Ashes so you'd expect nothing else. In hard situations, a lot of the time, people do surprise themselves and surprise you and are capable of more than what they might even think themselves.

"I don't think there's a drinking culture in cricket and in our side". Although England lost the last tour down under 5-0, this Australian team has their Test match demons, too. England will rely more on skill than speed, with James Anderson and Stuart Broad bringing experience and nous in place of clicks. So James Anderson - although he had a wonderful series in 2010-11 when he made the ball swing, reverse-swing and nearly talk - has an overall record in Australia of 43 wickets at 38 runs each.

The cricketer was caught on CCTV getting into a fight with a number of men and throwing several punches in the process of knocking one of them to the ground.

Upon being originally named as vice-captain, Stokes was pulled out of England's squad for the upcoming Ashes series.
