Ben Stokes is playing his first ODI series after coming out of retirement. The Southpaw slammed a century in the third one-day international against New Zealand, signalling his return in style.
He completed 100 off 76 balls, hitting the Kiwi’ bowlers to all parts of the ground. In the opening clash, he accumulated 52, while in the next encounter, Stokes managed 1.
He was convinced by England’s white-ball captain, Jos Buttler, to play for England in the ICC World Cup 2023, and the all-rounder agreed to help the team defend the 50-over World Cup title it won in 2019.
Stokes has 4 hundreds and 22 fifties in ODIs.
