Bristol Crown Court was told that Stokes was drunk and "enraged" after a bouncer refused to allow him and England teammate Alex Hales back into a nightclub hours after England had beaten the West Indies in a one-day global in Bristol.
Vaughan, who captained England between 2003 and 2008, reiterated that Stokes should be allowed to return to the Test side but said he was surprised the Durham player had not considered taking a break from cricket. "It has been a hard 10 or 11 months for him, I'm sure, but it's important for him that he can get back to being the unbelievable cricketer we know and love".
Stokes' recall is not certain, however.
"The Ben I know and who I see around the cricket team is a popular, unassuming, down-to-earth, very pleasant individual that will stay after a game and do autographs with kids for an hour and give his time", Hussain added.
Surrey batsman Pope made 28 on debut at Lord's while club-mate Curran added a rapid 40 and one wicket to his 63 and four for 74 in the first Test at Edgbaston.
The third Test starts at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Saturday."Now that the legal proceedings have concluded, the disciplinary process for Ben Stokes and Alex Hales can be scheduled by the Cricket Discipline Commission", ECB said in a statement."Considerable detail has been heard in this week-long court case and, in due course, there will be a range of matters for the Board to fully consider."In September of past year, following the incident in Bristol, Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were both referred to the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) by Director of England Cricket Andrew Strauss for alleged breaches of ECB directives and regulations.England's squad for the third Test: Joe Root (captain), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow (wicket-keeper), Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Alastair Cook, Sam Curran, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, Jamie Porter, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes".
The CDC operates at "arm's length" from the European Central Bank, as spelled out in background information on the governing body's website, and can impose penalties ranging from a caution as to future conduct or a reprimand, to an unlimited fine or suspension and termination of registration.
"The [Cricket Discipline] Commission is important, but Ben Stokes having a look at himself is important", said Hussain, pictured. "I do think he owes many an apology. With good guidance and a bit of self-assessment, he could easily become one of the great, great cricketers that England have ever had". Meanwhile, English all-rounder Ben Stokes had missed the second Test at Lord's owing to his trial surrounding last year's affray outside a nightclub in Bristol.
Instead of plotting retirement he heads to Nottingham this week just ten wickets behind Australian great Glenn McGrath, the most prolific pace bowler in history with 563 scalps.
