The court heard Mr Spure identified Stokes to police officers, who then arrested the cricketer.

They are jointly charged in connection with an incident in the Clifton Triangle area of Bristol on September 25 previous year - several hours after England had played a one-day global against the West Indies in the city.

"I made a decision to intervene and asked Ryan Ali and Ryan Hale to stop abusing Kai and William".

He claimed Ali replied: "Shut the f*** up and f*** off or I'll bottle you".

Prosecutors allege that trouble flared after Stokes and Hales caught up with Ali, Hale, O'Connor and Barry on a nearby street.

"I walked into the road to try to separate the group and get in between them", he said.

The England cricket team had gone to the Mbargo nightclub in Bristol following England's victory over the West Indies in a one-day match in September past year.

"In my statement I describe him as a gentleman with ginger or light brown hair".

"He had a conversation with his friend and he said "300 get us in" and I still told them no". Door supervisor Andrew Cunningham, 37, told the jury: "I don't like bullies". Ali, Spure said, was "trying to back away or move away from the situation" before the punch was thrown.

A jury has been told Stokes mocked two gay men, Kai Barry and William O'Connor, outside the Mbargo nightclub and flicked a cigarette butt at them.

According to the Central Connecticut Health District, the mosquitoes that tested positive for the virus are in the Culex family. There have been three human cases of West Nile virus in the county this year.

Stokes, the England cricketer who is standing trial for affray alongside Ryan Ali and Ryan Hale, was also described as feeling "vulnerable and frightened" as the incident unfolded and claimed that, having seen at least one bottle used in the brawl, feared his opponents had "demonstrated a willingness to use weapons in attacking people".

Stokes told police he "did not feel in any way drunk or impaired" and that he had consumed two or three pints at dinner before a further five drinks of vodka with a mixer in the Mbargo nightclub.

Mr Cunningham refused to allow them back inside as it was past closing time, Bristol Crown Court heard.

A 27-year-old man allegedly suffered a fractured eye socket in the incident.

Hale cycled to hospital, where he was found to have bruising and a 1.5in superficial laceration to his forehead consistent with blunt trauma.
