Johnson, Stokes cleared to play in Perth despite charges of 'misconduct'

London, Dec 9 : Ben Stokes and Mitchell Johnson have been cleared of any misconduct after an International Cricket Council hearing into their collision on day four of the Adelaide Test, it is understood, according to reports.


According to the Guardian, the pair clashed as Stokes made his way through for a single while Johnson was bowling in the second innings of England's defeat.

Under the ICC code of conduct, a maximum penalty of a one-Test ban or full match fee fine was possible for either player, the report said.

After both pleaded not guilty, it is anticipated the ICC will officially confirm later on Monday that no further action will be required, the report added.
