Stokes struggles with bat and ball in Canterbury debut
Dec 04 2017 by Kathy Alvarado
A clatter of wickets saw Otago collapse from 175 without loss to 198 for seven, but Stokes ended with figures of nought for 49 off nine overs.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said he cannot play for England as he waits to discover if he will be charged by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
With his team struggling at five for two, he strode to the crease at the Village Green-type Mainpower Oval in the North Canterbury town of Rangiora to a supportive applause.
The 26-year-old has maintained he was in New Zealand on a family visit and just wanted to "do well, and contribute to Canterbury winning".
Stokes, meanwhile, appeared to hurt his side during his Canterbury bow, although he is expected to be fit to face Auckland Aces on Wednesday. "There's no injury problems at all there". The second Test at Adelaide sees a more even contest being played out on day one.
