Ben Stokes is the best all-rounder in world cricket at the moment. Despite playing his first one-day series after months following a decision to take back the retirement back from the fifty-over format, he didn’t show any rustiness.
In the third game against New Zealand, he slammed the highest score by an England batter in the fifty-over version. His 182 came off 124 balls, with 15 fours and 9 sixes. His carnage was saluted by fans on social media.
Here are the reactions.
He paid tribute to his late father after reaching the fourth ton of his ODI career. He struck a fifty in the first game and managed 1 in the second contest with the Kiwis.
