In the fourth Test he made 31 in England's first innings score of 400, but failed to pick up a wicket or make an impression in England's second innings as they lost by an innings and 36 runs. About the Author: About the Author: Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1991, Ben Stokes moved to Cumbria with his family at the age of 11. The player concerned will not say anything too controversial, in part because he is bound by the terms of his contractual arrangements with the Board employing him, and in any event is hardly likely to want to betray the trust of team mates. He also missed the 2017–18 Ashes and the second Test match against India due to the incident and the subsequent trial. He recounts his thoughts before and after each game and some of the matches contain interesting information.

I was thoroughly impressed with how well the summer was documented and how Stokes gave his perspective and despite this book being about his achievements he does a great job painting the picture that it's not just his success but the entire teams.

Some of the most tedious cricket books that I have picked up are those concerning a season’s international cricket, to which one or more of the participants have lent their name.

When discussing an unfortunate dismissal against Afghanistan in the World T20 group stage, he invokes Mario Balotelli and his "Why Always Me?

He made scores of 47 and 72, with the latter from only 47 balls, to set South Africa a target of 437. In their second innings England were still 73 runs short of victory with a solitary wicket remaining.Stokes has been part of the Northern Superchargers squad since the inaugural season of The Hundred in 2021 but has only made two appearances for them so far.

Stokes was a key member of the Durham side that won the 2013 County Championship, and was also named Man of the Match in the final of the 2014 Royal London One-Day Cup Final at Lord's, having scored 38* and taken 2 wickets in a low-scoring game against Warwickshire. In some ways that is a shame because earlier on there is an excellent look at the aftermath of the World Cup victory, but I suppose you can’t have everything. On 17 June 2020, Stokes was included in England's 30-man squad to start training behind closed doors for the Test series against the West Indies. Faced with an incisive Australian bowling attack and Bradmanesque batting contribution from Steve Smith, [56] Stokes played a pivotal role in enabling England ultimately to draw the 2019 Ashes series 2–2 (although Australia thereby retained the urn).Even though I watched the 2019 World Cup final and knew the outcome having seen the replays so many times, I still found myself almost on the edge of my seat as Ben recounted the whole thing from his point of view. In the following match, his first innings score of 120 was crucial in setting up an innings win for England, which meant they took a 2–1 lead in the series going into the final test match. In the final against New Zealand, he scored 84*, including 2 sixes in the final over (one traditional and one due to overthrows after a ball bounced off Stokes' bat to the boundary), to tie the game. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. He then batted in the super over with Jos Buttler, which again was a tie, but England won the match on the boundary countback rule then in place.

It's perceived you can't feel a certain way – that's a sign of weakness to show that you are not mentally feeling great. It was class reading what Ben had to say about those moments, but other than that it was pretty ordinary. Since I witnessed both these moments live, I was naturally curious to know more about what his thought process was before and after the event. Stokes top scored for England with 47 runs in the first innings to help England limp to 155 all out. It provides an insider's account into the dream summer the Englishmen had in 2019, wherein they won an enthralling WC at home and then drew the Ashes with arch rivals Australia.

When it was finally confirmed that Martin Guptil The emphasis is, naturally, on the final and the central role Stokes played in England’s long awaited triumph. His sixth wicket stand with Jonny Bairstow (who himself scored 150 not out) of 399 was a new world record, of which 196 were scored in 25 overs in the morning session on Day 2 alone. However, I will always be able to say I was there - England v Australia, 3rd Test, Headingley, Day 4, 25th August 2019.
