Stokes did a great job

England captain Ben Stokes came out to bat at number three in the fifth Test match of the Ashes series. Moeen Ali was unable to bat at number three due to injury. Stokes hit number three in dizzying fashion and hit all over the ground. He scored 42 runs off 67 balls, which included three fours and 1 six. He was fired by Todd Murphy. Stokes has a total of 15 sixes in the 2023 Ashes series as soon as he hits a six in innings and has become the player with the most sixes in an Ashes series. He has broken Kevin Pietersen’s record. Pietersen hit 14 sixes in the 2005 Ashes series.

Left so far behind Rohit Sharma

The record for hitting the most sixes in a Test series is held by Indian captain Rohit Sharma. In 2019, he scored 19 sixes in the three Test series against South Africa. At the same time, Shimron Hetmyer is at number two. He hit 15 sixes in the Test series against Bangladesh in 2018. Now Ben Stokes has matched Hetmyer for number two in terms of hitting the most sixes in a Test series. If he had hit another six in the current Ashes, he would have been right up there with Rohit Sharma.
