Benjamin Andrew Stokes is an English international cricketer and vice-captain of the England cricket team in Test cricket. He is regarded as one of the best All-Rounders in world cricket and in England history. Stokes was part of the England squad that won the 2019 Cricket World Cup. In July 2020, Stokes captained the England team for the first time, for the first Test match against the West Indies. Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, Stokes moved to northern England with his parents at the age of 12, where he learnt the game and began playing club cricket for local teams. A left-handed batsman and right-arm fast-medium swing bowler, Stokes has been the top-ranked Test all-rounder in the world since July 2020.
