Ben Stokes dominated the ICC World Cup 2019 opening match between England and South Africa at Kennington Oval, London, on Thursday. The 27-year-old all-rounder top-scored for England with 89 runs off 79 balls, including nine boundaries, claimed two wickets, took two catches and effected a run out of Dwaine Pretorius (1). However, one catch that helped Adil Rashid dismiss Andile Phehlukwayo (24) in the 35th over impressed one and all in the much awaited World Cup 2019 opener. The International Cricket Council (ICC) lauded Ben Stokes in a tweet, saying: “Ben Stokes has just taken one of the greatest catches you will EVER see!”
Stokes, back-pedalling and diving, held a brilliant one-handed catch in the deep to dismiss Phehlukwayo, a crucial dismissal that derailed South Africa’s chase.
The ICC later posted the video of the “one of the greatest catches”, which started receiving the admiration of fans within no time.
