Ben Stokes will stand trial in August, when India travel to England for a five-match Test series, after pleading not guilty over an altercation outside a nightclub.

Addressing Bristol Crown Court via video link from New Zealand, Stokes said, "Hi judge," when he was introduced remotely to Judge Peter Blair during a 15-minute hearing.

Two other men also pleaded not guilty in Bristol in the early hours of Sept. 25 after England played the West Indies in the city in southwest England.

Their trial is set to start on Aug. 6 and last between five and seven days. England's second Test against India starts Aug. 9 at Lord's in London.

Stokes missed the Ashes against Australia last year but his suspension was lifted in time for a tour of New Zealand. 

The English all-rounder was a part of the ODI squad against New Zealand where the Brits won the five-match series 3-2. 

Stokes will in the meantime play in the Indian Premier League after he was once again the highest bought player in the 11th edition of the league, sold for a massive Rs. 12.5 crore by the Rajasthan Royals, who make a comeback to the IPL after a suspension of two-years.
