Mr Stokes, 27, of Castle Eden, Co Durham, said that he was acting in self-defence when he punched Mr Ali, 28, and his friend Ryan Hale, 27, both of Bristol, hours after England beat the West Indies in a one-day global.

Stokes said he would have had a bottle of beer after the match, two or three pints at the hotel, five or six vodka and lemonades and then "potentially had some Jagerbombs" in Mbargo.

Ali who was knocked unconscious and suffered a fractured eye socket said in his evidence he remained in the care of a surgeon and still suffered from double vision.

The decision means European Central Bank could yet make changes to the unchanged squad it named for the Trent Bridge Test against India, starting on August 18.

In a video seen by the jury, body camera footage from arresting officer PC Stacey Allway showed Stokes handcuffed in a police vehicle, being told: "You're being arrested because of the man in the red with the blood".

He said Stokes was mimicking the mannerisms and voices of two gay men, William O'Connor and Kai Barry, outside the club but the cricketer insisted they were exchanging "banter" about his expensive white leather shoes.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said it would now be scheduling its own disciplinary process for Stokes and team-mate Alex Hales.

He said he was moved to intervene in the situation, telling Ali and Hale to "leave it out - you shouldn't be taking the piss because they're gay".

He added: "I would have to perceive a significant threat to do that".

The court decision on Stokes is expected this week and the European Central Bank said it would assess his availability once the trial is over.

"I was trying to stop Mr Ali doing damage to anybody with a glass bottle".

Stokes was on trial for knocking out two men in the southwest English city of Bristol last September.

'We're not the finished article - we've got a long way to go to where we want to get to'.

Ali, 28, was found not guilty of affray while Hale was acquitted of the same charge part way through the trial at Bristol Crown Court. He told police: "Because he was abusing my two friends for being gay".
