Ben Stokes creates another record

Ace all-rounder Ben Stokes is the most valuable player in the England side given his lionhearted attitude in the field. Always putting in the hard yards, Stokes is always seen giving his 100% in all three departments of the game.

The number three ranked Test all-rounder recently set a record on the third day of the second match between South Africa and England. By catching Anrich Nortje off the bowling of James Anderson, Stokes claimed the England record for most number of catches taken in an innings.

He overtook compatriot Joe Root, who most recently completed four catches in an innings against Ireland last summer. Stokes equaled the world Test record of five catches, which has been witnessed 11 times in Test cricket.
