Ben Stokes hits 64-ball century, setting a district record for six innings

London: [UK]May 6 (ANI). On Friday, England’s test captain բոլոր all of Durham’s rivals Ben Stokes scored a record 17 six in a single cricket inn.

He surpassed the record set by Australian hard hit Andrew Simmonds, who represented Gloucestershire with 16 of six six-pointers to Glamorgan back in 1995. In addition to the Symonds, Graham Napier struck Surrey 16 times in the cricket inn in 2011 with 16 six-pointers from Essex.

He performed this feat during his team’s game against Worcestershire in the 2022 County Division 2 Championship in New Road, Worcester.

This memorable knock by the Englishman included an attack on the 117th overseer of the game, where he broke the spins of Josh Baker with a huge score of 6,6,6,6,6,4 in the overseer alone. This took Stokes fast from 70 (59) to 100 (64).

The versatile player was finally sacked by Worcestershire captain Brett D’Oliveira. His 88 goals, 161, eventually included eight quarters և 17 six.

Durham is declared 580/6 in 128 overs, and Ned Eckerslin և Liam Trevaskis are undefeated with 0. (135) also played some brilliant knocks.

Pacer Ben Gibbon was the Westershire Bowlers’ favorite with 2/94 25 overs, four of whom were girls.

It is noteworthy that the English Cricket Council announced in April the appointment of Ben Stokes, a versatile player, as the captain of the men’s test team. Stokes replaced Joe Ruth and became the 81st captain of the English men’s test team.
