Ben Stokes is a freak!! In fact, given his accolades, fanfare and contribution to English cricket; he is almost certain to attain the
prestigious Knighthood. The current clamour going around in the UK for 'Sir' Benjamin Stokes is only fair given his phenomenal success this summer.
From almost single-handedly winning England the elusive 50-over World Cup to famously snatching the Leeds Test to keep the Ashes alive has been superhuman effort to say the least.
Amidst the chaos, pressure, expectations, Stokes's 135* helped the hosts seal a dramatic one-wicket win in the third Test against Australia at Headingley. With 73 more to get, when Jack Leach, the last batsman, walked out to bat, the England all-rounder delivered some breath-taking shots to stun the tourists and the capacity crowd present at the venue.
Such was the brilliance and the timing of the knock, many experts are even questioning if it was the greatest Test innings ever
In case, you missed it, take a look at the epic knock and finish by one of the modern day greats.
