Ashes 2015: Ben Stokes hailed for superb show against Australia in 4th Test

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.

 

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.

 At stumps on Day 2 of the fourth Test, Australia were wobbling at 241/7, trailing by 90 runs with just three wickets in hand.
