Twitter Reacts as Ben Stokes Single-Handedly Wins the 3rd Ashes Test for England

The England cricket team were on Cloud 9 when they seized victory in the third Ashes Test. As it turns out, the hero of the day was none other than Ben Stokes, with his incredible batting. The Englishman singlehandedly snatched the win away from the grasp of the Australians to level the series 1-1.

An unbeaten 135*, coupled with 77 from Joe Root and a half century from Joe Denly did the talking. In the end, it was Ben Stokes and a solitary single from Jack Leach, that saw out the game.

The all rounder confessed that he was “over the moon” after that career-defining knock.ย  He said, In terms of where we were at in the Ashes series, I’m obviously over the moon that we’ve managed to stay in the series,”.

“We knew if we lost this game then the Ashes were gone. To be sat here, especially after getting bowled out for 67, to still be in with a chance of getting the urn back is an amazing feeling. Walking off there at the end was a time to take everything in and realise what we’ve just done as a team, not as an individual.”
