Friends, probably all of us will remember the day of 14 July 2019. Everyone remembers how the ball struck Ben Stokes’ bat, travelled straight to the boundary, and tied the game. The New Zealanders were very disappointed by this scene. However, now the same memory has become fresh once again for the people of New Zealand. Like once before, the place belonged to Lord’s, and only Ben Stokes came out to do the feat.
I want to say that the final of the 2019 World Cup was the most spectacular match in the game’s history. This small but high-scoring match was being played on Lord’s historic ground. Ben Stokes was run out in the final over of the match by New Zealand fielder Martin Guptill, who threw the ball towards the wicketkeeper.
Ben Stokes had dived at that time, and England got six runs. Due to this, the match was tied to Ben Stokes and gave success to England. A tie followed this in the Super Over, and England has declared champions for hitting more boundaries.
Friends, it has been three years since this incident. But even today, the mention of this incident starts being discussed when the ball hit the bat of Ben Stokes. But it would have guessed that after three years, once again, a similar situation between the two teams would come to the fore. And again, the Lord’s ground became a witness to this situation.
Trent Boult bowled the ball during the third session of the Lord’s Test between the two teams, and Root pulled the ball, which a diving square leg fielder stopped.
Ben Stokes came out of the crease because he was taking runs. Bane returned to the crease as soon as the fielder threw. At the same time, the 14 July 2019 action replay was seen. And this time, the ball was seen going to the other side after hitting the bat of Ben Stokes.

Ben stood in his place as soon as the ball struck his bat, and Boult followed suit. However, the ball did not go for four runs because the fielder was present to stop it.
However, this incident immediately reminded everyone of the World Cup 2019. Remembering all the players, including Ben Stokes and Root, started laughing. On the other hand, even the commentators sitting in the commentary panel could not suppress their laughter.
If you know, you know 😅
