What they said

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.

-- Former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott.

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

-- Former England spinner Graeme Swann.

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

-- Former England Michael Vaughan

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.

-- Ex-Australian player and coach Darren Lehmann.

The greatest ever innings by an Englishman.

-- Former England skipper Alastair Cook.

You cannot do that Ben Stokes .....

-- Ex-England captain Nasser Hussain restates his famous phrase

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

-- Former England footballer Gary Lineker
