Domestic Career & Debuts

Before playing first-class cricket, Stokes, a Durham Academy product, produced a stunning century against India in the 2010 Under-19 World Cup. He had a fantastic 2011, scoring massive runs and getting plenty of wickets. His ability on the home front was proved with a fantastic century against Hampshire, including five sixes in one over and a month later, a first limited-overs century.

Stokes still played for the England Lions despite suffering from a broken finger. Later that year, he received a call-up for England’s ODI series against Ireland. In August 2011, he faced them for the first time. In September of the same year, he also played his first T20 match against the Windies on 23 September 2011. He started his test series on 5 December 2013 vs. Australia against Adelaide.

International Career

ODI  Series

In 2011, Stokes played against Ireland in his first ODI. Indian opponents made up his following ODI series. Due to an injury he sustained during the series, he was only selected as a batter and could not bowl.

Due to an injury, poor performance, and other conduct concerns, Stokes did not participate in a single game for the England cricket team in 2012. Stokes was once again selected for the ODI team in the opening ODI of the 2014 series against the West Indies.

Stokes was a team member later that year for the series against India. After the first two games, he was benched but was brought back for the series’ penultimate match, in which he also contributed 33 runs and three wickets. 2015’s ODI series against New Zealand improved his bat and ball performance. By capturing three wickets for 52 runs, he assisted his team in winning the series finale.

T20 Series

In 2011, Ben Stokes played his first T20I against the West Indies. After that, he participated in two games in the Twenty20 series with New Zealand. After a match against the West Indies in 2014, Stokes attacked a locker, which led to his exclusion from the 2016 T20 World Cup.

In the lone T20 encounter against New Zealand in 2015, Stokes played for the team and contributed with a score of 24 not out and two wickets.

Stokes came up short in the two-match T20I series against South Africa in 2015–16. For the 2016 ICC Twenty20 World Cup, Stokes was chosen. The early tournaments going saw little influence from Stoke.

Stokes bowled effectively in the semifinal matchup with the Kiwis, taking three wickets for 26 runs. Ben Stokes was given the ball to defend 19 runs in the last over. But Carlos Braithwaite hammered him for four straight sixes, and West Indies won the Cup.

Test Series

In the second Test of the 2013–14 Ashes series against Australia, Stokes played his first Test match. He scored 120 off 195 balls in England’s second innings of the third Test of the series to get his first Test century.

Stokes displayed a terrific all-around effort in the series, hitting 279 runs and collecting 15 wickets even though England was thoroughly defeated. The Indian national cricket team was Stokes’ next opponent in a significant Test series in 2014.

He was left from the team for the remainder of the series due to poor batting in the first two Test matches. Stokes was summoned aside when it came time to tour the West Indies. Stokes’ performance in the competition fell far short of expectations.

Despite his poor performance, Stokes was kept in the lineup for the Test series against New Zealand. Ben scored the second-fastest century by an England batsman and the quickest-ever Test century at Lord’s during the second innings of the first Test of the series.

He needed just 85 balls to score 100 runs. The 2015 Ashes will include Stokes. His performance was uneven as England went on to win the series 3-2.

IPL Series

The Rising Pune Supergiants paid Rs 14.5 crore to sign Stokes for the 2017 campaign. He struck 103 without being knocked out against the Gujarat Lions to get his first T20 century. In 14 games in the 2017 campaign, Stokes thrice won the Man of The Match award.
