Big statement from Alex Hales
After winning England’s historic T20 World Cup, Alex Hales said that ‘I certainly did not think that my time would come again. This is a wonderful filling. The last 6-8 weeks have been quite enjoyable but this is the icing on the cake. I took my time in the Pakistan tour, it was a quality bowling attack, it took me a while to settle down. I thoroughly enjoyed this tournament and played well in important matches.
Stokes made England champion
The England team, which came out to chase the 138 runs given by Pakistan in the T20 World Cup final, was seen lagging behind at one point of time. The initial three wickets of the team fell for 45 runs. After this, Ben Stokes, who came to bat, kept one end and played the match winning inning. Stokes scored 52 runs in 49 balls in this big match. He hit 5 fours and 1 six in his innings.
This is not the first time that England’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes has played a match-winning inning in the final of an ICC tournament. Earlier in the 2019 ODI World Cup too, Ben Stokes played a match-winning inning of 84 runs off 98 balls in the title clash against New Zealand.
