Watch: Ben Stokes surprises himself with an interesting six
New Delhi : England star allrounder Ben Stokes was in his best form when he came to bat against West Indies in the 2nd Test match. He scored brilliant 176 runs off 356 balls to help England score a brilliant 469 for nine in the first innings.
While scoring his hundred during the game he played several shots which were in accordance to the sports manual but there were a few shots which even surprised him. Particularly, the one he smashed on the second ball of the 114th over.
Stokes – with a straight bat and minimal effort sent Joseph's ball for a six over the long-on boundary. Stokes’ reaction of ‘disbelief’ after the shot is epic.
