I've honestly spent the last 2 hours watching back the highlights of both the World Cup final and Stokes knock in the Ashes. Its the only reason I bumped the thread. :lol:

Having had a year to think about it, I honesty think my number 1 favourite sporting moment is the Ben Stokes heroics in the Ashes, it just had everything you love in sport, drama, brilliance, a tale against the odds. Everything.

I missed much of that day as I was playing cricket and we just assumed it was over upon hearing England needed 70-odd when nine down. Ended the innings in time to hear England were on the verge and rushed up to the bar for the late drama. Simply extraordinary stuff (with a bit of fortune). Stokes is ridiculous given what he achieved and even better to think it’s the same guy who lost a T20 WC final by getting hit for four straight sixes three years before. The 2019 WC final was something else to me though given what it meant as a fan and for cricket in general here (shame covid messed things up the next year). Every time I watch that I wonder how I remained calm seeing England need 15 to win off 4 balls.
