Ben STOKES - England - Test Record

England's all rounder Ben Stokes is joined by his team mates to celebrates his fifth wicket in Australia's

second innings, in the 4th. Ashes Test, at Trent Bridge.  He took 6 for 36  (21 overs) as Australia were dismissed for

253 giving England a victory by an innings and 78 runs. They thus regained The Ashes. The portrait is of him on the

player's balcony at the end of the three day test (well 2 days and less than an  hour).


He did not bowl in Australia's 1st innings (of 60) when Stuart Broad took 8 for 15 !

Ben Stokes during his record breaking century at Lord's where he took 85 balls to pass 100. He was voted man of the match.

Graham Gooch took 95 balls in 1990 and Ian Botham 104 balls in 1978 - both Test century records at Lord's.

The two lower images show Ben celebrating his 50 and then his 100 (running).  The game was against New Zealand with whom

they shared the two Test series 1-1.

Three of the images are of him hitting sixes.  Photos G. Herringshaw. © May 24th 2015.

 

In the 2nd Test against South Africa in Cape Town (January 2016) Be made the above look mundane !

In an innings of 258 he scored the highest ever by a No. 6 batsman, hitting 130 in the morning session alone - more than

any batsman in Test history.  His innings included hit eleven sixes, a record by any England batsman in a Test innings and with

Jonny Baistow reached another record: 399 for the sixth wicket partnership. That partnership also established a record fastest

300 partnership in Test history.
