About the Author

Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1991, Ben Stokes moved to Cumbria with his family at the age of 11. He made his debut for Durham CCC in 2009, and just two years later pulled on an England shirt for the first time.

The highlights of his explosive England career to date have included scoring the fastest ever Test century at Lord's (against New Zealand in May 2015) and England's fastest ever Test double-century (against South Africa at Cape Town in January 2016). His bowling spell of 6-36 at Trent Bridge in August 2015 helped England to regain the Ashes.

He has also played for the Melbourne Renegades in Australia's Big Bash League.

He is married with two young children.
