New Delhi. Star all-rounder Ben Stokes lauded a new legacy under captain Jos Buttler after England became T20 World Cup 2022 champions at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday (November 13). Left-arm pacer Sam Curran (3/12) and leg-spinner Adil Rashid (2/22) bowled brilliant spells to restrict Pakistan to 137/8. After this, on the basis of Ben Stokes’ unbeaten 52 runs in 49 balls, England defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets and won the T20 World Cup title.
England included the T20 World Cup in their list immediately after winning the 50-over title. With this, England became the first team in men’s cricket history to win both the trophies simultaneously. Stokes said that after Eoin Morgan, Butler had put his stamp on the team as captain. Morgan won the ODI World Cup in England in 2019. He has retired and is now associated with cricket as a commentator. The all-rounder said on Sky Sports, “When the great man (Eoin Morgan) stepped down and Jose took over, you see how quickly he was able to take control of the team and progressed from the legacy that Morgan had. had left. Jose has now created a legacy of his own.”

Stokes further said, “He is such a person, whom everyone follows on the field. It shouldn’t be taken lightly because of how difficult it can be to make tactical decisions under pressure in this format.” The wicket of Adil Rashid, who took a brilliant catch to dismiss Babar Azam in the 12th over of Pakistan’s innings, was also a turning point. Rashid took 2 wickets for 22 runs.

Stokes said, “Adil Rashid, Sam Karen, who won us the game. It was a tricky wicket. When you are chasing the goal in these kind of games, you often forget the hard work you put in earlier. The way Sam, Rashid and all the bowlers bowled to get them banned… I think that was a big reason why we weren’t under too much pressure with the run chases.” He said, “I never felt like it was out of our hands and [मैं] Just trying to make sure I stayed in there as long as possible at the end.”
The 31-year-old Ben Stokes and captain Jos Buttler hailed England’s defeat to Ireland in their rain-affected group game as another turning point in the context of the tournament. Stokes said, “We got that defeat (against Ireland) at the beginning of the tournament. We definitely had to overcome that and move on.” He said, “You cannot carry the burden of defeat in this type of tournament. It was a slight mistake on our part and credit goes to Ireland who beat us but the best team learn from their mistakes and don’t get affected by them.
