England have come out of nowhere in the 1st Test vs India and now it is another epic encounter. The Indians are now 7 wickets down and what looked like a certain Indian victory has now turned into a neck-and-neck contest where India will be in a spot of bother with the last remaining proper batting pair Ravichandran Ashwin and KS Bharat at the crease. It is up to these two players to get the Indian team out of trouble after a heap of wickets falling in the previous sessions. England have somehow made a solid comeback in this match and will be wanting to use this opportunity in their favour completely.

This will certainly make the English skipper Ben Stokes happy to see their team finally get back in the series. Stokes might have not been the man of the moment in the 2nd innings but was responsible for getting his team out of trouble in the 1st innings where he scored a brilliant 70 off 88 deliveries to get his side to 246. Stokes got better and better every game as the England captain and will be happy with this effort by his team. He might not be bowling for his team in this Test match due to his knee injury, but he has still been an important player for his team in any match he has featured in whether it is bowling, batting or fielding.

Stokes great fielding effort

The England skipper is still showing unbelievable athleticism on the field in this ongoing Test match, where he ran out Ravindra Jadeja in the following innings. This was an important moment in the game since Jadeja had shown what he is capable of with the bat in the 1st innings as well with a brilliant knock. Stokes came out of nowhere diving forward towards the ball from mid-on and throwing and releasing the ball as soon as possible onto the stumps to affect the dismissal. This was definitely one of the top fielding efforts of the match which we will ever see from the England captain.

Seeing the athleticism of Stokes even at the age of 32 is absolutely unreal and really great sight for an England side. He has proved to everyone that even after injury he can still give his best for the team in the toughest situations as well. Stokes has still proven himself as a match-winner in the longest format in the game and he is still proving to be an important figure in the England team. We might want him to come back with the ball, but no matter what he is still Mr. dependable in the crucial moments of the game.
