Benjamin Andrew Stokes (known as Ben Stokes) is an English international cricketer and former vice-captain of the England Test team. Happen in 2019 Cricket World Cup, England required 15 from the last over of the regular match. Ben Stokes hit a six and then benefited when a throw from the deep hit his bat as he dived for ground and was inadvertently deflected for four overthrows.
Stokes’ performances were a rare bright spot on a disastrous trip. When the agony was all over, only Stokes returned to England as a star on the rise. Brought into the XI at Adelaide, after Jonathan Trott’s untimely departure, his pugnacious nature came to the fore during a maiden Test hundred in Perth, a doughty response out of keeping with England’s general demean our throughout the tour.
But with fire came combustibility. Stokes missed the 2014 World Twenty 20 in Bangladesh after reacting to a dismissal in Barbados by punching a dressing room locker and sustaining a broken wrist. During a difficult year, he was dropped from the Test team after making three ducks in a row against India, and then lost his one-day place on the tour of Sri Lanka – ultimately missing out on selection for the 2015 World Cup.
Stokes, like England, required to rejuvenate after a dismal tournament. The Lord’s Test against New Zealand started when Stokes scored 92 and 101 after being promoted to bat at No. 6. A good Ashes followed and he was also a key figure in the new-look ODI team that started placing the World Cup behind them under Bayliss and Paul Farbrace’s leadership. A few months later, during a run of 399 with Jonny Bairstow, he generated a barnstorming 258 from 198 balls against South Africa in Cape Town-the highest double-hundred England in history and the second fastest ever.
