Ben Stokes Shines Making a Historic Chance at the Oval

The best day of batting at the Oval saw England amass 389 runs for nine wickets, leading by 377 runs against Australia.

Mail Sports columnist David 'Bumble' Lloyd shared his unique insight, remembering Ian Botham's spin brilliance in 1984.

Ben Stokes achieved and became only the third cricketer to achieve 6000+ runs, 100+ wickets, and 100+ catches in Test cricket.

Stokes now joins the esteemed company of Sir Garfield Sobers and Jacques Kallis, legendary all-rounders who achieved similar feats.

His ever memorable 100th catch, taken off Joe Root's bowling, dismissed Australian batter Alex Carey.

The Oval witnessed thrills and spills, creating an exciting atmosphere and leaving cricket fans with plenty to discuss. And created record of 2023.
