England pulled off an unlikely win in the third Ashes Test at Headingley, Leeds on Sunday. He struck an unbeaten 135 to help England square the series.

With 359 runs to win, England were down and out with the scoreboard reading 286 for 9. In joined Jack Leach. Still requiring an unlikely 73 runs to win the match, Stokes made sure that he took most of the strike, struck the ball sweetly to different corners of the ground and helped his side pull of a miracle. During the course of his knock, Stokes played some outrageous strokes to unsettle the Australian pacers.

Australia on the other hand were unable to capitalize on the errors made by the opponents. They wasted a review for a LBW appeal against Leach. In the end, it came back to haunt them as Lyon trapped him plumb in front in the dying stages of the game. Judicious use of reviews from the Aussies would have helped them retain the Ashes. Later, Lyon fumbled a easy return from backward point to run Jack Leach out.

Resuming the day at 156 for three, needing 203 runs more to win, many gave England very less chance considering the fact that they just made 67 in the first innings. Except Joe Root, Joe Denly and Jonny Bairstow none of the batsmen made significant contributions to their side.

Now let us have a look at some of the tweets,

The fourth Ashes Test will begin at Old Trafford, Manchester on 4th September 2019.
