New Delhi: English all-rounder Ben Stokes was on Friday praised for his superb bowling performance on Day 2 of the fourth Ashes Test.
Stokes, who was dismissed for a duck in the first innings, made up for the loss with a fine spell of seam bowling where he dismantled Michael Clarke-led Australian team with a five-fer. His effort was hailed by English cricketers on Twitter.
Another good day. @benstokes38 take a bow!

In the first innings of the 4th Test, Stokes took a stunning one-handed catch to dismiss Adam Voges, an effort which left the bowler Stuart Broad in a huge state of shock.
