Ashes 2019: Cricket world goes berserk as Ben Stokes gives England a win for the ages

Posted On

On Sunday, Ben Stokes played a sensational knock as England recorded a win for the ages in the third Ashes Test against Australia at Headingley.

After being bowled out for a paltry 67 in their first innings, England looked dead and buried at 286-9 in its pursuit of an unlikely 359 on Day 4 in Leeds.

But Stokes hit 135 not out, channeled the spirit of Sir Ian Botham in 1981 and even eclipsed his match-winning knock in the ICC World Cup final, to lead England to their record chase in Test cricket.

And following the remarkable victory, which includes Stokes being dropped on 34 and 116 runs, cricket world couldn’t handle what had happened.

Here are some of the best tweets:
