“Eoin Morgan could have become T20 World Cup winning captain, but someone blew that up,” Ben Stokes trolled himself after winning another World Cup final for England

Ben Stokes scored a match winning half century for England in the T20 World Cup 2022 final against Pakistan

Ben Stokes, who once again delivered an impact knock for England under pressure in a World Cup final earlier today against Pakistan, was in a very jolly mood, as he talked to the Sky Sports commentators after the game finished.

The final of the T20 World Cup 2022 was played on a very tricky MCG pitch earlier today between England and Pakistan and although Pakistan put only 137 runs on the board since the pitch was tricky and Pakistan had some good fast bowlers in their ranks, it was never going to be a straightforward chase for England.

The way Pakistan started and the amount of seam movement their fast bowlers were getting off the surface, once England lost 3 wickets at less than 50 runs, the match seemed like even stevens and that’s where Ben Stokes came to the party for England.

The eventual score of Stokes would read 52 off 49 balls which not everyone would consider a great T20 knock, but the way Stokes soaked all the pressure with the ball seaming around and made sure England didn’t go on the backfoot was something remarkable to watch.

Ben Stokes trolled himself while talking to pundits after the game

When Ben Stokes was talking to the pundits after the game, his former white ball captain Eoin Morgan was there as well and the duo recalled the 2016 T20 World Cup final in India where England were playing West Indies in the final and Stokes was the bowler who had to defend 19 runs in the last over.

Carlos Brathwaite ended up hitting 4 consecutive sixes off the bowling of Stokes and England lost that final. Stokes, after redeeming himself from that lost T20 World Cup final 6 years ago, trolled himself on Sky Sports and said that Eoin Morgan had the opportunity to become a T20 World Cup winning captain, but “someone blew that up”.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
