T20 World Cup final. England crushed the Pakistan dream to repeat 1992 history And won the final by 5 wickets.
- Melbourne. “It’s Ben Stokes with the winning runs… Who else!?
It’s always Ben Stokes with the winning runs!”
Nasser Hussain calls the winning T20 world cup shot.
If someone shouts Ben Stokes’ name, we will see glimpses flashing before our eyes like Carlos Brathwaite’s four sixes to snatch victory from England’s lap in 2016. There are some moments in a person’s life that break that person, perhaps that moment on the night of the 2016 T20 World Cup was such a breaking moment. But you won’t break and come back if your name is Ben Stokes.
Yes! On Sunday night, England became the head of the T20 World Cup for the second time and this time the hero of this story has got a new name Benjamin Andrew Stokes it is. The same name who had distanced himself from cricket some time ago due to mental health, but when he returned, he showed the whole world how strong he is mental.
“He’s a real match-winner in a true sense, and he’s been in tough phases many times and this final night was nothing different . Ben just knows how to do it. He might not have timed the ball the way he could have, but you know we’re going to stand up and be there in the end,” Butler said.
Every England veteran cricketer and other former cricketer of another country has been praised for the feat by Stokes.
Sam Curran received Man of the match award for his bowling performance but at one stage England’s batting lineup was struggling with the score of 49/3. When Ben came out to bat he was not able to connect the ball properly.
The Pakistani pacer was bowling on the right lengths. But Ben Stokes kept his nerve in control, had patience and he valued his precious wicket. Nobody has ever won a match sitting in the dugout. You have to stay on the crease to win the match and he did the same. Of course, Shaheen Afridi’s injury was a big blow for Pakistanis but Stokes played a fabulous inning of 52 runs and even was the perfect contender for Man of the match.
At the post-match presentation, a presenter asked jos “So is Ben Stokes England’s greatest cricketer of all time? “He can be in the conversation, for sure,” Jos said. The redemption story of Ben Stokes is nothing less than a movie script. whether it is the 2019 50-over world cup or the 2022 T20 world cup, In the last couple of years he has played some extraordinary knocks and taken his country to the glories.
