England’s Ben Stokes is now a”world box-office fascination” together with his Ashes heroics from the third test against Australia, and his life won’t ever be the same again, former all-rounder Ian Botham has stated. All-rounder Stokes’ unbeaten 135 in Headingley on Sunday helped the hosts chase a record goal of 359 spectacularly and amount the five-match show at 1-1.
The 28-year-old’s epic knock evoked memories of Botham’s famous unbeaten century on precisely the same floor in 1981 that ignited an equally improbable home evaluation win and forced him an Ashes hero for the ages. I believe Ben’s life is going to be the same. He’ll have no personal experience. He must get used to this and so do the household,” Botham informed the Daily Telegraph.
“He’s public property, but it’s an excellent spot to have the long run. He’ll reap the benefits that he deserves, and he’s presently a world box-office attraction.”
Botham, 63, clarified Stokes since the”Special One” and stated the big-hitting all-rounder’s want to be successful from the most extended format proved to be a welcome hint.
“He’ll play all of the T20 leagues however the refreshing thing about everything is that he wishes to play cricket and perform well in it. That’s the best test,” Botham added. We had been bowled out for 67 (at the first innings of the next evaluation ), and at any other format, it is going to be over. Test cricket provides you space for something extraordinary to happen, and it occurred.
“It may take 48 hours to sink, and he will think,’I will do it, and I’ll do it ‘. He has timber on Australia and that I tell you, there is no greater sense as an England cricketer.”
The fourth evaluation starts in Old Trafford on Sept. 4.
