  1. The tied test match at Brisbane more then 50 years ago was something special as well, but I think this finish was even more spectacular. In my whole life (I'm 73) I haven't seen anything nearly as spectacular as this innings by Ben Stokes. There are many great innings to remember, of course, but this test century under this kind of pressure takes it to another level. So for me, this was the greatest test innings of all time! Love you, Ben Stokes!

  2. Best batting performance in the history of test match cricket, BUT sir Ben stokes, please NOOOOO, he's not Churchill, he's not Nelson, he's an amazing sportsman, but let's not forget… fame is perfume of heroic deeds, as amazing as what Ben achieved is he's not a war hero, he hasn't changed the trajectory of a people or freed a people, he hasn't cured a disease or warred on a continent.
    He's an amazing cricketer but let's not get carried away. GIVE THEM BREAD AND CIRCUSES

  3. Never write England off. We have the ability to achieve when the chips are down. Plenty of very good players with lots of talent and a couple of special ones to get us over the line. Come on England. The Ashes need to come home ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ๐Ÿ†

  4. Best thing about the whole interview is rooty saying we were not good enough for long parts, shows honesty and integrity as a captain. He needs to move to bat at 4. Bring in sam Curran for butler and Anderson for woakes and maybe ollie pope for Jason Roy who is without doubt one of the most explosive batsmen in odi cricket but sadly doesnt have the patience for test match batting

  5. Ben Stokes innings was awesome. What a cricketer I enjoyed his innings it was so fantastic to watch

  6. Ben is a better batsman than root

  7. Stokesy for sports personality?

  8. Magic guys ( no more words)

  9. roots in awe of anyone whose balls have ddropped

  10. As an Englishman I still can't help feeling that some of our batsman play with the mentality of a one day game and forget how to play in a test match. I'm in no way dismissing what happened in that match (I'm still celebrating) but they do go for a lot of balls that should be left clean alone.

  11. I am in awe of English cricket good luck since world cup.

  12. Congratulations ingland
    Congratulations Ben stoc

  13. Sir Ben Stokes he is a excelent all rounder in present in the world.

  14. Title should be "Root, stunned he still has a job"

  15. I'm still buzzing. Fantastic!

  16. 8:22 , 10:40 , 14:52
    THE BEST MOMENTS EVERR !! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

  17. The last minute, Rooty just nailed it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ "His handwriting is terrific, his language isn't great either๐Ÿ˜‚" Oh my God, he finally got some words! Anyways, so many Congratulations to England and the star of match, the divine one #SirBenStokes โค๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ Can't praise them anymore on an Australian channel

  18. Excellent cricket and versatile batsman stokes

  19. The innings stokes played it should be placed top 10 list of test cricket books for greatest innings played by a player with 10th wicket
    May be we can't see this type of batting against strong opponents like australia

  20. If England want to perform in tests then don't make ben stokes the captain… It will hamper his performance

  21. Take the captaincy from Root. He hasn't been the same since he was Mae captain. Same with Cook and Flintoff. Let the lad concentrate on his game instead of dealing with everyone elses game

  22. I don't why umpires are always in favour of England.

  23. Root turned up to be fair with a great 70

  24. Jack leach is my hero. Coming in at 11, needing 73 more, against the best bowling attack in the cricket world, he stuck out 17 deliveries in that partnership, with his spectacles on as well. Believe me, it's so hard to bat with your specs on. We saw one of the best fielder in australian side , Nathan Lyon succumb to that pressure. It was so easy just to poke at a delivery, or play across the line . Jack leach

  25. Very poor umpiring and very poor use of DRS by Aussies. As a keeper Tim Paine should have assessed the LBW reviews better. DRS rate of success of Aussies only 10 percent. Bad cricket and Aussies choked

  26. How much time u win with the help of umpires

  27. what does he think of the plumb lbw not seen by the umpire?,would've lost by a run..

  28. I still feel, Root is far better batsman when he plays as pure batsman rather than being the captain. People like Butler, stokes deserve captaincy. No offence to ROOT, but just for his betterment, he needs to focus alot more on batting!

  29. Ben Stokes is the next Ian Botham. Thumbs up if you agree.

  30. Ben Stokes is best stroke in the game

  31. This is "real cricket". This is "test cricket"

  32. Man of the match :12 th bats man umpire

  33. Joe still stunned his emotions come out

  34. Ben Stokes is most loved cricketer in these days

  35. Umpire decision wrong..so aus loss the match

  36. Incredible innings by Ben. He has nerves of steel.

  37. Root is stunned and awe and emotionally drained after this test match and will take 3-4 days to sink in.
