Cricketing Legends in Frenzy Over Ben Stokes’ Magical Match-Winning Innings

Cricket lovers across the globe witnessed one of the greatest innings of all time as England’s World Cup hero, Ben Stokes produced magic with his bat yet again.

The 28-year-old all-rounder was at his absolute best under pressure as he got England over the line against all odds. The come-from-behind win has kept England in the Ashes as they drew the series level at 1-1 with 2 matches still to go.

Superman Stokes ended with 135 not out as he joined with Jack Leach for a last-wicket partnership of 76*. Interestingly, the slow left-arm bowler, Leach scored only one run. His single, however, was the one which helped level the scores.

Stokes smacked 8 sixes in his knock, single-handedly winning the match for England. The hosts were bundled out for a miserly 67 in reply to Australia’s first innings total of 179. Tim Paine’s men set up a strong target of 359, which needed England’s highest successful run-chase to win the game.

The left-handed batsman, who was the architect of England’s World Cup win last month, once again proved that he is one of the most impactful players around in world cricket.

Former Australian captain, Ricky Ponting says he cannot believe what he saw.

The batting effort has earned him plenty of praise from cricketing circles. Let’s have a look at what is being said about him on social media:
