New Zealand side Canterbury have approached England all-rounder Ben Stokes about his availability to play for them, they said in a statement on Tuesday.

If Stokes is training and playing with Canterbury, it would allow him to get match-fit following a long lay-off because of the police inquiry.

"It doesn't matter if he [Stokes] was defending someone or not [as has been reported]", he told News Corp. While he was released without being charged, he was suspended by the European Central Bank, who have maintained that he would only be considered for selection once the police investigation has concluded.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), however, said he was travelling to New Zealand to spend time with his family. The expectation is a backdated ban.

He has recovered from the broken hand he sustained in the street fight and sources close to Stokes have said he is desperate to return to playing cricket. It would also throw doubt on whether the ECB's disciplinary process would allow him to play in next year's IPL.

"And the only way you learn as a person is when there are strong consequences for the mistakes that you make and you have to learn from them and get better".

Former England allrounder Ian Botham, speaking during a climb of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, took a different view.

With Stokes already having missed out on an estimated £50,000 in match fees as well as a lucrative £200,000-a-year sponsorship with England team sponsor New Balance as a result of his arrest and suspension, his representatives will argue he has been punished enough.

Watson, who will captain Big Bash League side Sydney Thunders in the upcoming season, also said that England will find it hard to make comeback in the series without the inclusion of Stokes. "There's no doubt that England are going to be trying to show the bravado that they have, but it's just not going to be the same without him in the team", he said. "Whatever happens with the police inquiry, the European Central Bank inquiry, if it goes his way then he's ready". "It's impossible to fill that void".

But Watson doesn't believe Stokes should be permitted to join the tour.

Alastair Cook was among the names listed by Lyon as threats and, after a concerning first Test that saw him nick off for two and then be suckered into a pull shot on seven in the second innings, the former captain netted alone at the ground during a rest day for England.

"Even someone like myself, who doesn't read the paper or go out of my way to look at social media during games, it's still always around". "His travel arrangements have not been arranged by the European Central Bank".

However, it appears participation in New Zealand's domestic events is the more likely with Canterbury confirming there had been informal discussions on including Stokes for the Ford Trophy and Burger King Super Smash competitions.
