Ben Stokes played an innings that will go down as one of best that we have ever seen in the IPL. After being criticized for his performances so far in the IPL, Stokes walked in with his side reeling at 10/3 and needing a miracle to keep their top four hopes alive. That is when the Stokes Show began. After his match winning performance, Ben Stokes has a message to all his fans which he gave on Twitter.
It was only the second hundred by an Englishman after Kevin Pietersen scored one in 2012. This was also Stokes’ first T20 century with his previous high score being 77 which he made in the Big Bash.
This was also a huge victory for his team as Pune really needed this win to give themselves a good chance of making it into the playoffs. This is a huge result for them as they now stand a fantastic chance of making it into the last four.
