After Lord’s Hundred Ricky Ponting Compares Ben Stokes Match Winning Ability With Former Indian Skipper MS Dhoni

Ricky Ponting Compares Ben Stokes match With MS Dhoni: The current captain of the England Test team, Ben Stokes, saw an excellent inning of 155 runs in the Lord’s Test against Australia. Chasing a target of 371 runs, the England team may have had to face defeat by 43 runs in the match, but Stokes’ innings had definitely made the match very exciting. Now on this, former Australian captain Ricky Ponting has praised Stokes and compared him to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. According to Ponting, the ability to win matches in Stokes is similar to that of Dhoni.

Talking about the innings played by Ben Stokes in the Lord’s Test match on the ICC review, Ricky Ponting said that I and everyone felt at that time whether Stokes was going to do something like the Headingley Test match again. Although this time the target was slightly higher, but when he started scoring fast, everyone remembered that test. In this match too, Stokes was dropped by Smith, while Marcus Harris dropped his catch in Headingley as well.

Ponting further said that I think a player batting at any number in international cricket is under pressure. Ben Stokes comes down to bat in the batting order and he also has more chances to win the team. In such a situation, the first name that comes to my mind is that of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Who has finished the match many times in T20 format. Stokes is seen doing something similar in Test cricket. I don’t think any player would have been able to do such a feat as a captain in Test cricket.

All eyes now on Headingley Test

After the defeat of the England team in the Lord’s Test match, now it is very important to win the last 3 Test matches of the series to get back the Ashes. After the controversial dismissal of Johnny Bairstow, the thrill of this series is now being seen at a different level. In such a situation, everyone’s eyes are fixed on the Headingley Test match to be played from 6th July.
