Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
English all-rounder Ben Stokes has become a totally different cricketer ever since his return to the game post scandal. He played some quality knocks during the recent World Cup, helping his side in winning its first ever men’s ICC Cricket World.
The left-hander played yet another scintillating innings in the 2nd Ashes Test at Lord’s as he helped the home side in gaining a dominant position during the latter half of the match. Stokes rescued England in the second innings by scoring an unbeaten 115 at a time when the home side was already 4 down.
The uncharacteristic knock gathered praise from all around the world as everyone appreciated the all-rounder on playing one of his best Test innings under pressure.
