Ben Stokes, the captain of England, had a great performance in the second Test match against South Africa. He exhibited an all-round performance that helped his side win the contest by an innings and 85 runs to tie the three-match series at 1-1. The left-handed batsman had just got his first hundred while leading his team in a test match, and he went on to capture four wickets as well. All of the wickets fell at a time when England desperately needed a breakthrough, and he threw a flurry of bouncers in an effort to upset the batters when they were at the crease.
AB de Villiers, a former captain of South Africa, was impressed with Stokes’ performance and tweeted, “Ben Stokes is one helluva cricketer.” Stokes’ performance earned him the highest praise possible from de Villiers.
In another tweet, he stated the following: “During this test, England has bowled really well. Utilized the crease in the paper effectively from wide in order to ask an inquiry on the business channel. We had some opportunities with the ball in the first innings, but we were unable to make any breakthroughs at the appropriate times. We were literally touching.”
Stokes scored 103 runs with the help of six fours and three sixes while batting against a total of 163 balls. He did this by hitting six fours and three sixes. In addition, he was responsible for taking two wickets in both the first and the third innings of the match.
On Saturday, England won the second test against South Africa at Old Trafford in just three days by crushing them by an innings and 85 runs to take the match. The triumph, which came after South Africa’s nearly as crushing innings and 12-run win in the first Test at Lord’s, meant that England tied the three-match series at 1-1 going into the second match at The Oval.
Rassie van der Dussen (41) and Keegan Petersen (42) were both dismissed by England captain Ben Stokes for their respective interval scores for South Africa as they were in the middle of their second innings with a score of 141-3. The Proteas, who were leading the World Test Championship at the time, were eventually bowled out for 179 after collapsing against the new ball. In the process of being dismissed, they lost their final five wickets for a total of seven runs while facing 31 balls.
Ollie Robinson, a recalled seamen, had a 4-43 performance in 15.
1 over remaining, and the famous England batsman James Anderson, age 40, has taken 3-30.
