England team cling to a faint hope of a draw against Australia in third Test match.
There has not been much for England cricket offcials to be happy about this Ashes tour.
But one bright spark that is slowly emerging is the talent of Ben Stokes and what he could mean to the future of not just the series but also the England team.
Stokes got his start in Adelaide largely due to the team’s desire to play two spinners, but it has been while playing under pressure in the middle of the WACA that English cricket fans got to see what get he was made of.
The 22-year-old looms as the key key man for England if they are to salvage a draw and keep their chances of retaining the Ashes alive, after he made it to the end of day four on 72 not out.
