Ben Stokes played a knock of his life to power England beat Australia by one wicket in the third Ashes Test at Headingley in Leeds on Sunday. Stokes' insane inning of 135 runs kept England alive in the Ashes hunt. He smashed 11 fours and 8 sixes in his 219-ball inning. This was an inspiring comeback by England after being bowled out for 67 in their first inning. Apart from Stokes, England captain Joe Root (77) and Joe Denly (50) scored half-centuries. For Australia, Josh Hazlewood was the leading wicket-taker, claiming four wickets in the second innings. Nathan Lyon picked two while Pat Cummins and James Pattinson shared one wicket apiece. Earlier, after being put to bat, Australia were all-out for 179 and 246 in their respective innings. (SCORECARD)
