Vaughan demands a new status for Ben Stokes

English all-rounder Ben Stokes has been breaking records on and off the ground as he has now become more popular than American pop-star Taylor Swift in Wikipedia searches after his miraculous innings in Headingley.

Stokes brought England back into the game after everyone had given up as he started smashing the visitors after a sluggish start to his innings, ending the game with an unbeaten 135.

Former English skipper Michael Vaughan has advised the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to give him the prestigious knighthood as he produced one of the most memorable Test performances ever.

The honor of knighthood has been given to a total of 30 cricketers over the years for their services towards the game and some other reasons. 

Former English skipper Alastair Cook was the last cricketer who became a knight last year after completing a successful career spanning over 12 years.
