Stokes starred in all 3 departments as England stormed to a 104-run win over South Africa in the first match of World Cup 2019.Jofra Archer took 3 for 27 and rattled South Africa with his pace. He bowled with venom and left the Proteas reeling inside the first 10 overs of a steep 312-run chase.Not long ago, Ben Stokes was enmired in a massive controversy after a fight outside a Bristol pub. He was left out of the Ashes tour to Australia and upon his return, the Ben Stokes of old was missing. But over the last year, Ben Stokes has turned a new leaf – he is much calmer on the field without losing his zeal to win games for England.On Thursday, Jason Roy, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan hit fifties but Ben Stokes stood out with his composure and his acceleration. He top-scored with 89 and took a brilliant catch before picking up the final 2 South African wickets to set up a huge win for England. Named man-of-the-match for his sensational all-round show, Ben Stokes revealed he was actually a bit nervous before taking that blinder.”I had a bit of a panic on, I was a little further in that I should have been, but I’ve the nickname, “The Claw”, and luckily it stuck!,” Stokes said at the post-match presentation ceremony.Ben Stokes was the hero for England in his very first World Cup match. He has left behind a controversial past and as one of the most senior cricketers in the team, Stokes took it upon himself to give the hosts a resounding win.advertisementIt was by no means an easy pitch to bat on – yet England breached the 300-run barrier before their bowlers ensured South Africa were not getting anywhere near the target.”We were thinking early doors, it’s a tricky wicket, get it up to 300-330, the slower balls were digging in a bit. Boundaries were hard to get away, but psychologically getting over 300 was a big thing. Unbelievable atmosphere, great turn-out for [my] first World Cup game,” Ben Stokes said.Alongside Ben Stokes, another World Cup debutant had a day to remember. Jofra Archer, who made it to England’s final 15 at the very last minute, showed why he is such an asset to the team.Only last month, Chris Woakes, another star England all-rounder, had said he was not in favour of Archer playing the World Cup.If he was to come in and someone was to miss out, it would be extremely unfortunate,” all-rounder Woakes told BBC Sport.”I wouldn’t want to see any of my mates and team-mates miss out. We’ve been a tight-knit group for the last two to three years, played some really strong cricket, won a lot of series.”Apart from a personal level, I wouldn’t want to see any of my mates and team-mates miss out. But it’s the nature of international cricket that there is always someone knocking on the door.”On Thursday, as Jofra Archer blew South Africa with his pace, Chris Woakes and every memeber of the England team must have realised they were lucky the captain and management were so keen to play the tearaway pacer.Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer were destined to do great things for England in the World Cup at home. 20 years ago, England had a disastrous campaign in their own backyard – this team is determined to make amends and have already sent a strong message.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Faf du Plessis rues Dale Steyn absence after opening loss to EnglandAlso Read | England vs South Africa World Cup 2019: Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer power England to opening night winAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Hashim Amla retires hurt after being hit on helmet by Jofra ArcherFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
