Ben Stokes was born in New Zealand’s Christchurch on June 4, 1991. A little over 28 years later, he played a crucial role for England as the country for his birth suffered a major heartbreak in the final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
Ben Stokes, for starters, smashed an unbeaten 84 to steer England’s chase of 242 against the Black Caps. Moreover, Martin Guptill’s throw in the last over of the World Cup final deflected off Stokes’s bat and ran over to the boundary as 6 runs were scored at a key stage.
Not surprisingly, Stokes was named man-of-the-match after England won the World Cup despite a tied final and a tied Super Over. The hosts were crowned ODI champions because they scored more boundaries.
Ben stokes received the award from legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar in the post match presentation. Posting the picture of both of them cricket world cup’s official twitter account wrote a caption saying “The greatest cricketer of all time – and Sachin Tendulkar 😉”

As expected, this tweet didn’t go well among the fans who follows the account. They trolled the post hilariously with witty replies :
