The case of England cricketer Ben Stokes will be heard at Bristol Crown Court today.
The 26-year-old Durham all-rounder – who missed the Ashes after being suspended from playing for England – is accused of affray with two other men.
The clerk read out the charges and all three defendants indicated not guilty pleas.
The case is listed for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Monday morning.
It follows an incident in the Clifton Triangle area of Bristol during the early hours of September 25 last year – several hours after England had played a one-day international against the West Indies in the city.
It is alleged a 27-year-old man suffered a fractured eye socket in the incident, at which fellow England cricketer Alex Hales was also present.
