Ben Stokes returns to form with 93 in latest Canterbury outing

14 Décembre 2017

Stokes came in at the end of the fourth over with Canterbury at 37-2, and dominated proceedings from there, anchoring Canterbury's record total of 217-9.

Ben Stokes scored at the rate of almost two a ball, but fell seven short of a century as he returned to form in his latest appearance for Canterbury.

Otago could only muster 83 in response, with the 134-run win doubling as the biggest margin of victory in the history of the domestic Twenty20 competition.

After a spate of batting woe - he was run out after just one ball on Sunday and scored only two the weekend previous - the 26-year-old smashed six fours and seven sixes in his innings.

Jacob Duffy led Otago's efforts with the ball, taking 5-39.
