NO.1 ON TRUSTPILOT!
Players like Stokes come along very rarely. He is a left-handed batsman and uses his right arm as a fast-medium swing bowler. Stokes is one of the most explosive all-rounders in world cricket and was integral to England’s famous World Cup victory in 2019. Ben’s combative nature and his brilliant, powerful frame, has helped elevate England to another level. He stood out in the 2019 World Cup Final, which is widely regarded as one of the best sporting matches in history. Stokes was influential to England’s victory that day. He used all his strength and talent to score an unbeaten score of 84. Stokes then went on to bat to help England win a Super Over by the narrowest of margins.
The cricketing superstar was born in New Zealand and moved to England aged 12. Stoke’s sublime talent was recognised at a very early age. His energy, passion and aggression is phenomenal. Not only is the big man a firm fan’s favourite, but he is also an extremely popular figure amongst his teammates. He has the ability to intimidate the opposition with his physical presence and is acknowledged as the enforcer in the team.
Stokes is the vice-captain of the England cricket team and captained the team for the first time against the West Indies in 2020. He is in the prime of his career. Stokes has the perfect balance between physical capability, match experience and knowledge of the game. Stokes currently holds the record for scoring England’s fastest ever Test double-century. Quite impressive for a middle-order batsman. He regularly bowls over 140kph with a swing on the ball. Stokes was the highest-paid foreign player in the Indian Premier league in 2017 with a contract of £1.7m. He repaid this by winning the most Valuable Player awards that season.
Many cricket fans would argue he is now the most complete English cricketer. Others would argue the likes of Sir Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff or Fred Trueman give him a run for his money. Stokes still has a number of years to play and we are confident he will reach even greater heights.
