Ben Stokes: England can win Ashes without all-rounder, says Moeen Ali

Allrounder Moeen Ali right says England can still win the Ashes without Ben Stokes left

But their last tour of Australia saw them suffer a 5-0 Ashes defeat in 2013/14.

But Ali certainly does not.

But asked if he thought the Ashes could still be won without Stokes, Moeen insisted: "Yes, otherwise I feel there's no point in going out there". The pair could be among several England players who face European Central Bank action, with Strauss saying: "What I am doing is speaking to the players individually to get their accounts of what went on". But when you are celebrating a series win, or enjoying casual beers in the dressing room, that breeds I think a really positive culture as well.

Whether or not Stokes travels to Australia, the routine of touring in Australia will undergo a significant change after the events of the past week. England's next global fixture will be against Australia in the first Ashes Test on November 23. It's something that when you're a young county player you're always thinking you'd love to be on that sort of tour. I am very excited about it.

But sources close to the player said the shirt could have been bought from any sports store, or online, and the image had nothing to do with the player.

"I don't know this guy or why he would do this". Hopefully I can go out there and perform in the Ashes.

"If I am asked to bat further up the order that's fine".

"The higher up I bat the better‚" he says.

He said he does not expect violence, because "it's not in the Catalan DNA to use violence to solve political problems". The Commission said it respected Spain's constitutional order.

"I'd be very comfortable".

'Not only does it fiercely upset and hurt me and family, Harvey is very fortunate to not understand but I do and I will do everything in my power to make sure these trolling bullies get punished, ' the mum-of-five said at the time.

Ali expects to be greeted by a short-pitched bombardment down under with the Aussie pacemen running in hard and letting fly to try to unsettle him and his England team-mates.

"Hopefully they'll get exhausted doing it [bowling the bouncer]". "The key things are timing and knowing that if you drink too much that can impact on your performance and preparation - and that is in no way accepted by the management".

"I played in Australia in the [2015] World Cup and it was white-ball but the wickets are really good out there".

England have one more global fixture - the fifth ODI against West Indies in Southampton on Friday - before they are due to travel to Australia on October 28.

"With the confidence I've got throughout the year, I feel that I can just go out and play the way I do".
