With the return of international cricket post coronavirus pandemic, fans as well as cricket celebs, are happy and excited about the future of the captivating game. The cricket made its return in the form of an ongoing Test series between England and West Indies.


The three-match series has reached a thrilling stage as both teams have won one Test each and are looking forward to the final game which starts from Friday (July 24) at Old Trafford in Manchester.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes has impressed everyone with his spectacular performance especially in the second Test when he scored a brilliant 176 in the first innings and unbeaten 78 in the second innings. Stokes also claimed three important wickets and helped his team with an all-round performance to win the second Test.


Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan was enthralled with Stokes’ show at the Old Trafford and heaped praises for the England star. Pathan also opined that Team India would become unbeatable if they have a match-winning all-rounder like Stokes.

However, former international Yuvraj Singh decided to take a funny take on Pathan’s analysis. He simply asked: “Are you saying we don’t have an all-rounder who’s a match-winner”?

Then, Pathan replied to Yuvi’s question by praising the Chandigarh-born cricketer.



The conversation just didn’t end there between the two inspirational cricketers. Yuvraj hailed Irfan for his contribution to the Indian team, and the Vadodara-born responded that Yuvraj knows him pretty well.

Meanwhile, the English all-rounder is carrying on his golden form of 2019 in the current year as well. Stokes is the leading run-scorer of 2020 at present. In 5 matches, the left-handed batsman has scored 612 runs at a breathtaking average of 76.50 with two centuries and as many fifties.
