Vaughn asks for a 'culture change' in English cricket The cricket fraternity around the globe was augmented by the arrest of English superstar Ben Stokes in an incident of night club brawl. Following that former English skipper Michael Vaughan asked for a change in culture in the England national team.

Stokes, however, has not been charged yet; Vaughan said although he carries no sympathy for the young English all-rounder, the team management should address to the players how to behave.

Talking to BBC on Tuesday, Michael Vaughan said, “Yes, he’s 26 years of age, he should be more mature, he has made a massive mistake and I have no sympathy for Ben Stokes whatsoever,”

“But the management of the England team have to look at themselves in the mirror and say, ‘Hang on a minute, could we have done a bit more, could we have been a bit stricter?’.

“I am not saying I want a headmaster and have a curfew and say, ‘You have got to be in your room by 11:00 pm and you can never drink’, but there is a time and a place and I just think now, with what has gone on this week, the culture of cricket has to change quickly,” he said.

Ben Stokes was arrested after getting involved in a physical fight with an unknown man in a night club in Bristol. The video footage showed up the English all-rounder knocking a man in the floor and throwing punches to him.

Stokes has been under threat of missing the all prestigious Ashes if he would be convicted of the charges.
