Twitter Reactions: Ben Stokes magic hands England an epic win in Cape Town

All-rounder Ben Stokes bowled England to an epic fifth-day victory in the second Test at Cape Town, edging a compelling battle of wills with a defiant South Africa.

Stokes claimed the last three wickets in the space of 14 balls deep into the concluding session of the match as England clinched a 189-run win.


Stokes was named ‘Man of the Match’ but felt obliged to highlight the contribution of maiden Test centurion Dom Sibley, who he insisted should have been given the award.

“I thought Dom put all the hard yards in,” said Stokes, who tried to drag the Warwickshire batsman up for the post-match presentation. “He should be the one up here. Full credit should go to him.


“The future looks great for us. We showed an outstanding amount of character,” Stokes added.
