In a thrilling 2023 World Cup clash between Australia and England, Ben Stokes once again showcased his incredible power-hitting ability, but this time, it was a chair that felt the impact of his ferocious six rather than the bowlers. Known for his flamboyant stroke play, Stokes lived up to his reputation in this match.
England chose to bowl first, and Australia posted a challenging total of 284 runs, thanks in part to Marnus Labuschagne’s well-compiled half-century. England’s response didn’t start well, with two wickets falling within the first five overs. However, Dawid Malan and Ben Stokes came together to steady the ship and put England back on course for the chase. While Malan eventually got dismissed, Stokes continued to lead the charge for England with the bat, reaching his own half-century.
During his remarkable innings, there was a remarkable moment when Ben Stokes unleashed a brutal six that shattered a chair. This incident occurred in the 32nd over when Stokes, who had initially struggled but was finding his groove, smashed Travis Head’s delivery over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. The ball had so much power that it not only cleared the boundary but also shattered a chair placed beyond it.
This extraordinary display of power-hitting immediately caused a social media frenzy, with fans taking to Twitter to share their excitement and reactions to Stokes’ incredible six. It was a truly memorable moment in the match and a testament to Ben Stokes’ ability to electrify the cricketing world with his batting prowess.
