England’s talisman all-rounder Ben Stokes hogged the limelight in the ICC Awards as he was awarded the Sir Garfield ‘Cricketer of the Year’ award 2019. Stokes had an outstanding year in 2019 in both Test and ODI versions of the game. The left-handed batsman first led England to glory in the ICC World Cup 2019 as he played an imperative knock of 84 runs to help his side take the contest into Super Over.

Stokes was at his best in the final and stitched a crucial alliance with wicket-keeper Jos Buttler to help England level the score. Consequently, Stokes was awarded the Man of the Match award in the final of the ODI showpiece.

Furthermore, Ben Stokes played the innings of the year in the third Test match at Headingley to keep England floating in the Ashes series. Stokes came up with a tour de force performance as he smashed 135 runs in the second innings to help England chase down the target of 359 runs.
