Ben Stokes reflects on a sensational summer with England

England’s leading man Ben Stokes talked for an entire nation of cricket fans as??he summed up a unforgettable summer in five words:”It was a blast.”
The sport has enjoyed its year since 2005, elbowing its way into some very first drawn Ashes series in 47 decades, by an historic World Cup win into the dialog using a continuous practice of spills and thrills.
Nobody has played a part in delivering minutes. It had been his one-handed’Superman’ catch at the World Cup curtain-raiser that got the tournament going in fashion, his never-say-die innings that dragged the hosts back from the brink at the closing and also his all-time classic bluff at Headingley which given the highlight of a hard-fought Test effort against Australia.
Having spent in the eye of a storm,” Stokes was eventually able to reunite and talk about a beer with his England team-mates and Australian competitions as both sides came together to kickstart a draw at The Oval dressing rooms.
“It’s been a blast,” he said. “There have been some amazing highs and some moments I can barely believe occurred, but they failed and that I will always be able to recall what it was just like being out there at the middle once we won the World Cup or won in Headingley.
“It probably hasn’t all sunk in yet, but at a certain stage I will be able to look back with pride at what we managed to attain as a one time team along with a Test team this year.
“Earlier England had played a game this summer we understood we had the World Cup along with the Ashes before us and today we’re stood at the end as World Cup winners and using a drawn Ashes series.
“It has not all been plain sailing since we needed to dig out of a pit in the World Cup and then we needed to scatter until the very last to get that trophy, but we got it.
“Exactly the exact same in the Ashes, we had to fight all of the way into the end to find the draw but we have it and I believe that is something we can be so proud of. When things got rough, we did not innovate, we stood tall to the finish and showed the personality from our dressing room.”
Stokes is destined to go down as the principal figure in 2019’s sporting dramas, however he had been excited to share the charge.
He deemed Stuart Broad’s persistent performances resulting in the Test attack”epic”, Rory Burns”amazing” because of his efforts at opener and stated of emerging celebrity Jofra Archer:”I do not believe I have seen a talented bowler in my period.”
There was a special tribute for Jack Leach, drafted in as spinner following Moeen Ali’s loss of form. He handled 12 wickets, including two in two balls to conclude the series but won the people hearts.
His one not out at in a last-wicket rack of 76 with Stokes will go down in folklore, as will his habit of rubbing his eyeglasses between balls.
“He’s been the audience favourite the entire summer,” Stokes said. “The entire country fell in love with him”
You will find reports that Australia were taken with his routine but they refused man of the series Leach if he donned a set of glasses was being mocked by Steve Smith.
As the teams secured evening the pair posed for a picture that was light-hearted.
“He came for me to allow me to know that it wasn’t about me personally. I was kind of hoping it had been,” Leach said of Smith. “I believed it was a great laugh. I was very embarrassed after Headingley when the movie came out of me recreating my first one.
“I think I deserved that, to be honest. That is why we got a picture together following the game
Leach was able to talk about a joke out that would have changed the course of the series in Leeds with all spinner Nathan Lyon, that fumbled an easy run.
“Nathan came over and explained to me,’How many beers do you owe me?”’ I think owe him a great deal,” he smiled.
“When I was batting in the end along with the audience were all singing,’Stand up in the event that you enjoy Jack Leach’. I only thought,’What is going on?’ Sport is fickle and I suppose you need to enjoy the good moments and not get too down in the bad moments”
