A real good insight is that it shows how normal Stokesy is, in his thought process and how human he is, despite the super-human achievements last year. Stokes was charged on 15 January 2018 with affray along with the two other men, and appeared before Bristol Magistrates' Court on 13 February 2018. Something unprecedented had just happened: England had won the Cricket World Cup for the very first time since the tournament's inception in 1975.

It's perceived you can't feel a certain way – that's a sign of weakness to show that you are not mentally feeling great. In February 2023, he set a new record for the total number of sixes hit in a Test career, surpassing the previous tally of 107 set by his coach at the time, Brendon McCullum. He made his T20I debut in 2011, his Test debut in 2013, and played for England's One Day International (ODI) team from 2011 before retiring from the format in July 2022. He remained the last man standing in two matches for the ages - the World Cup final ( which England won but New Zealand did not lose) and the Headingley one wicket win ( which reiterated that Test Cricket ,despite being on a ventilator for long, is capable of showing some glorious signs of life). I almost relived the Dramatic final I have ever witnessed in CWC , with the exact emotions I have experienced when I witnessed how things were unfolded on that day.In the second match of the series Stokes was ineffective, taking just one wicket in the match and making scores of 4 and 13 with the bat as England suffered a 127-run defeat. An autobiography of sorts I guess but as mentioned this was purely based on the World Cup and the Ashes series from 2019. The Stokes journey has been more eventful than most, from growing up as a rebellious and adventurous youngster in New Zealand, to forging a path as one of cricket's most exciting talents with his adopted country. On 17 June 2020, Stokes was included in England's 30-man squad to start training behind closed doors for the Test series against the West Indies. In the following match, his first innings score of 120 was crucial in setting up an innings win for England, which meant they took a 2–1 lead in the series going into the final test match.

The player concerned will not say anything too controversial, in part because he is bound by the terms of his contractual arrangements with the Board employing him, and in any event is hardly likely to want to betray the trust of team mates. Stokes made his first-class debut for Durham against the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) during the traditional season opener, which for 2010 was taking place at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

He was named as England's player of the series as he ended the series as England's top run-scorer with 441 runs with 2 hundreds and 2 fifties, while also taking 8 wickets.

Stokes then managed to break the host's resistance, as they fought to draw the game, by taking the final 3 wickets to bowl them out for 248 runs to level the series. In October 2020, he scored 107 not out for Rajasthan Royals as part of an unbeaten partnership of 152 with Sanju Samson. Stokes played in all five ODIs against Australia, his best performance with the ball coming in the second game of the series where he took figures of 3–60, although England lost the match by 59 runs. Cue one of the most amazing innings ever witnessed as Ben Stokes thrashed the Australian bowlers to all corners of the ground, in the process scoring 135 not out, driving England to a barely-believable one-wicket victory, and keeping the series very much alive. Stokes has scored the fastest Test century at Lord's and England's fastest Test double-century anywhere.Stokes was left stranded on 82*, as England were bowled out for 212 in a surprise 20-run defeat to Sri Lanka. In July 2022, England defeated the South African team 2–1 in Test series, Stokes named Player of the Series, he scored 149 runs in 4 innings at an average of 37. Something unprecedented had just happened: England had won the Cricket World Cup for the very first time since the tournament’s inception in 1975. There are some insights here, amid the narrative details that all English cricket fans will always have an appetite for.

His catch to dismiss Andile Phehlukwayo has been described as "one of the greatest catches of all time". In any event I must keep reminding myself that many of those transfixed by Stokes’ twin peaks of Lord’s and Headingley were not even born when Michael Vaughan’s men produced their collective heroics. Stokes and Gibson were assisted, of course, by the 2019 English summer being one of the most dramatic ever. The accounts of the individual matches are much more than straight descriptions of the matches, and there are plenty of insights into Stokes’ thinking as the tournament develops even if he does not, as is to be expected, say anything by way of any significant criticism of any of his teammates.Starting from Single Test match against Ireland , then the Author takes through World Cup journey and Ashes.
