Dream Test XI of 2016: Fighters of Redemption


5. Ben Stokes (England) – 904 runs, Ave: 45.20 & 33 wickets, Ave: 25.81

Dream Test XI of 2016 : Dream Test XI of 2016Right at the beginning of the year, Ben Stokes created havoc as he blasted a 198-ball 258 run-knock against Proteas, the second fastest double-ton in Test cricket. But his biggest test was to be in sub-continent, where the ball doesn’t come on to the bat at the same pace and bounce as it does in other parts of the world.

But the Durham all-rounder played a match-winning role in Chittagong and fared decently in India to showcase his mettle. Stokes was very good with the ball as well as he took 33 wickets in 12 Tests at an average of around 26. He showed his aptness at generating reverse-swing and easily makes a cut to our team.
