I’ve seen some remarkable cricket moments in my life but that is the best I’ve seen in over 50 years. @benstokes38 saved the Ashes and gave a magical inspirational innings. Even better than his World Cup performance.

I have no sister but if I did I’d want her to marry Ben Stokes.

That has just bettered the World Cup final. Never thought I would be saying that. This is the summer that is going to inspire a whole new generation

One of the best innings of test match cricket you will see, well played @benstokes38. What a game, what a test match. #ashesaliveandkicking. Both teams so close together. Go the Aussies for the next Test.

The greatest ever innings by an Englishman.
-- Former England skipper Alastair Cook.
You cannot do that Ben Stokes .....

Arise Sir @benstokes38. You absolute hero. Best test match ever.
