England face a permanent curfew as a legacy of the Ben Stokes affair that 'changed their world' this winter.As Stokes prepared to make his Test comeback in the early hours of Thursday after the Bristol fracas that ruled him out of the Ashes and landed him in court, it emerged that there will be lasting ramifications from the controversy.The midnight curfew while on tour that team director Andrew Strauss imposed on the players during the Ashes is to stay in place not just for the rest of this winter but beyond.Strauss acted after the first Ashes Test in Brisbane in November after it had been revealed that Jonny Bairstow had been involved in an incident with Australia's Cameron Bancroft in a bar late on England's first night on tour.Then matters got worse when Ben Duckett, who was in Australia with the Lions, was sent home for throwing a pint of beer over Jimmy Anderson in the same Perth bar ahead of England's warm-up match before the last three Tests.It was felt Strauss might relax the order, which stretches to team management, once the fuss over Stokes had died down but clearly he wants to continue cracking down on cricket's drink culture.It was former captain Alastair Cook who said that England's 'world had changed' when what would once have been considered an innocuous incident between Bairstow and Bancroft had been magnified in light of the Stokes incident.Now clearly England want to hammer home how important it is for their players to stay out of bars late at night even though there has been no suggestion that any of them have stepped out of line so far in New Zealand.Stokes has his young family with him in Auckland and will be meeting up with his extended family in his native Christchurch next week where his parents still live.He has not confined himself to the team hotel since rejoining the team but has been noticeably quiet off the field, with a court case for affray hanging over him in August.
