About this deal

That is not so much of an issue for Stokes, though, whose career to date has not been short of incident. Starting from Single Test match against Ireland , then the Author takes through World Cup journey and Ashes. In the third Test he made 29 in England's first innings, and then took 5–73 in India's first innings. If you are a 'purist' and want to know how one of the best all-rounders of cricket today thinks, you can give it a shot. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).

Stokes has scored the fastest Test century at Lord's and England's fastest Test double-century anywhere. His 135 not out in the second innings at Headingley will be remembered as one of the greatest innings in Test history. The standout part of the book is without doubt Stokes’ account of that historic innings at Headingley.

Rather, it is as if you are one those remote control cameras that swoop in and out occasionally catching glimpses of what is happening. Stokes scored 299 runs, including a century at The Oval, and took 7 wickets in a four Test series against South Africa. He has also played for the Melbourne Renegades in Australia’s Big Bash League, and Rising Pune Supergiant and the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.

He was part of the England team that won the 2019 Cricket World Cup, top-scoring in England's innings in the final before batting in the tied Super Over, winning the Man of the Match award. p>The data controller is Headline Publishing Group Limited. Since I witnessed both these moments live, I was naturally curious to know more about what his thought process was before and after the event. An autobiography of sorts I guess but as mentioned this was purely based on the World Cup and the Ashes series from 2019. Having had a very successful debut season in first-class cricket, he was given a place in the England Performance Programme and travelled to Australia during the 2010–11 Ashes.He achieved this feat against South Africa when he made a partnership of 399 runs with Jonny Bairstow. The book is the story of Stokes' two career defining innings in the summer of 2019, the first in the world cup final, the second at Headingley some 42 days later. He made his debut in the 2nd Test and took the wickets of Michael Clarke and Peter Siddle before contributing 1 run in England's first innings. During the 2021 season, the England limited-over squad suffered a COVID outbreak at the end of a limited overs series against Sri Lanka. Stokes moved to England at the age of 12 [4] after his father was appointed head coach of Workington Town rugby league club, and grew up in the small West Cumbrian town of Cockermouth, attending Cockermouth School and playing cricket for Cockermouth Cricket Club.

although it provides a very brief account on Bristol incident, mainly on how the English Summer went on. However, I will always be able to say I was there - England v Australia, 3rd Test, Headingley, Day 4, 25th August 2019.

It's perceived you can't feel a certain way – that's a sign of weakness to show that you are not mentally feeling great. English Cricket has thrown up three great summers in my lifetime, 1981, 2005 and now 2019 and there is always a talismanic all rounder who is a little bit whoo and a little but wheey at the centre of the action. World Cup 2019 final, New Zealand vs England: England's World Cup 2019 win despite epic super over tie – Explained". In the second Test he finished with figures of 1–73 in India's first innings, before making 70 with the bat.

He holds the Test world record for most runs in an innings at number six, scoring 258 against South Africa during England's 2015–16 tour. In the absence of regular captain Joe Root (due to the birth of his child), it was announced that as vice-captain, Stokes would therefore captain England for the first time. It was against this sporting drouth, and desiring a break from an analysis of WG Grace's batting technique, that I was tempted by Ben Stokes On Fire which was lingering among the Mills and Boons in the book section of my local Asda.In February 2017, Stokes was bought by Rising Pune Supergiants to play in the Indian Premier League during the 2017 season.
