Absolutely incredible!
Take a bow Ben Stokes, that was a batting masterclass.

I am absolutely breathless after that finish?

Stokes brilliance ( and his T20 experience) giving him a place in Ashes history. That was Headingley 1981 and Edgbaston 2005 combined today.!

What a wonderful game cricket is!

Just caught up, (can't afford SKY) ...It almost looked staged at the end, but I've always said Ben Stokes is a proper 5 day cricketer even if he can 20 over it with the best of them. And by the way 20 over experience helped but the 3 off 77 balls is the main reason he was seeing the ball like a beach ball.

My dad used to say if you open you bat until the ball and bowlers are tiring then you can play shots. He opened the batting for Bombay State a couple of times (first class cricket) in the late forties. Before he came to the UK
