Johnson, Stokes cleared

Australia’s Mitchell Johnson and England’s Ben Stokes have been found not guilty of making deliberate physical contact during the second Ashes Test in Adelaide, the ICC said on Monday.

The incident occurred in the 84th over of England’s second innings when the players collided as Stokes was making a run. Both players pleaded not guilty to the charge and separate hearings were held after the second Test on Monday, following which match referee Jeff Crowe cleared them of the charges.
