England vice-captain Ben Stokes has been charged with affray following a disturbance outside a Bristol nightclub in September.
The 26-year-old missed out on the entire Ashes series as a result of the incident, as the England and Wales Cricket Board froze him out of contention while the Crown Prosecution Service launched a criminal case.
Stokes has now been formally charged by the CPS along with two other men, and he will appear before Bristol Magistrates' Court at a later date.
"Following a review of all the available evidence, the CPS has today authorised the police to charge three men with affray in connection with the incident," a CPS statement read.
Stokes was recently cleared to feature in the Indian Premier League, despite being out of contention for the national side.
