English all-rounder Ben Stokes has been in the news ever since his stupendous innings at Headingley last week as it was one of the most memorable innings in the country’s Test history.

Former English spinner and Managing Director of men’s cricket, Ashley Giles has applauded Ben Stokes for the incredible turnaround since his comeback into the side as he said that the all-rounder was desperate to get the vice-captaincy back when he got suspended.
“It was actually Ben Stokes who was badgering away as well about having the vice captaincy back, because this means so much to him. Not just the vice captaincy, but the Ashes series, Test cricket and he believes that as Joe’s right hand man he can deliver for him and he is demonstrating that pretty well at the moment,” he added.
Giles appreciated the commitment shown by the 28-year-old cricketer even after going through a rough break while he was starting to peak in career.
