Twitterati laud Stokes’ heroics and England’s epic comeback
England and their hero Ben Stokes are flooded with praises and wishes in the Twitter following an epic dramatic win at Headingley in the third Ashes Test.
England registered a dramatic win in the third Ashes Test against Australia as they beat the visitors by just one wicket with the help of another heroic knock from Ben Stokes.
It was one of the most memorable Test matches in the history of the game. England managed to make an epic come back from being bowled out for only 67 runs in the first innings. Chasing a target of 359, England crossed over the line with just only one wicket left.
Again It was Ben Stokes who did it for England in the Test match like he did in the World Cup final against New Zealand. Stokes scored the match winning 135 runs from 219 balls in the chase for England. Stokes had a match turning partnership of 86 runs with Jonny Bairstow.
There on he got little supports from the lower order batsman. But England lost the ninth wicket when team score was on 286. Jack Leach provided a solid support for Ben Stokes by having 76 runs with the all-rounder. In the end the duo managed to take England over the line to level the series 1-1.
AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT!!
AN ABSOLUTE WARRIOR!!
WHAT A MAN @benstokes38!!

Ben Stokes. Sir Ben Stokes. King Ben Stokes. Lord Ben Stokes. It's the turnaround of Headingley, the miracle of Leeds, and it's all down to one man. One Superman. The true uniform-less beast #Ashes2019 pic.twitter.com/ufdnsgxwY7

What a match. What a man. Ben Stokes! This man is clearly going to end up being one of the greats of the game. Within a span of weeks to first produce that performance in the world cup final and today one of the greatest ashes victories ever. Amazing #Ashes2019
