England's all-rounder, Ben Stokes' majestic innings went in vain as Australia won the match against England quite comprehensively by 64 runs. Stokes scored 89 off 115 balls including 8 boundaries and 2 sixes.
He tried his best to rescue England out of trouble, but in the process, his fanatic innings was ended by a ripper from Mitchell Starc. Stokes was so disappointed after he could not manage to get the side home that he threw his bat on the ground.
In the match against Sri Lanka, Stokes was again the lone warrior for England at the end but sadly he ran out of partners at the other end. England has seemed to lose its way in the last couple of matches and have jolted their world cup campaign. They need to resurge well and quickly if they want to justify their tag of "favourites" for this World Cup.
