Australia’s boosted confidence after winning the first two Tests was dented by England in the Headingley Test. England won the third match by 3 wickets. The limit of excitement was crossed in this match as well. Sometimes the match tilted in Australia’s favor, sometimes England’s side looked heavy in the match. Like the year 2019, the third match of the Ashes series 2023 will also be remembered for years. England captain Ben Stokes’ statement after winning this match is becoming a topic of discussion. So, let’s find out what he had to say…
Stokes’ life in the pot!
“I’m not going to lie,” Ben Stokes revealed after the match. I was a bit worried at the end. We knew that it was very important for us to win this match to stay in the Ashes series. I walked nearly 2 kilometers to the dressing room at Headingley in the last half hour. In fact I never saw the last 20 runs being made. It’s a completely different situation, when you can’t do anything.”
Speaking further, Stokes said, “You can just watch and hope things go your way. Looking at the Ashes series before the start of this match, the team’s performance in batting, bowling and fielding has been outstanding.”
Kudos to Brooke
Stokes also praised Harry Brook, who scored a crucial 75 for England in the second innings. He said, “Harry Brook is a very good player. He has a lot of talent. I think we have given him full opportunity to showcase his talent.”
Last minute thrills
In fact, England needed 20 runs to win. However, Mitchell Starc walked the set batsman Brook towards the tent. As soon as Brook was dismissed, the England team became worried. However, Chris Woakes (32 not out) and Mark Wood (16 not out) combined to lead England to victory.
The next match between the two teams will be played between July 19 and July 23 at the Old Trafford ground in Manchester. Both teams will try hard to win this match. (England skipper ben stokes told that he is very nervous in last minutes of headingley test of ashes 2023 know why)
