Ben Stokes will appear in an Amazon documentary directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes

Ben Stokes, England’s top cricketer, and new Test captain will be the subject of a documentary in which he will recount the highs and lows of his cricketing career thus far. ‘Ben Stokes: Phoenix from the Ashes,’ a documentary directed by Hollywood filmmaker Sam Mendes, will be released later this year.

The makers of a 2:44 second video have highlighted the left-handed batter’s cricketing path, including his early life and struggles in his cricketing career thus far. Stokes, the English Test captain, will be in action against New Zealand in a Test series that begins early next month.

Stokes debuted in Test cricket in December 2013 and has since played 79 times for his country. In February 2017, he was chosen vice-captain, and he also served as captain when Root was away for the birth of his second child in the summer of 2020. Durham’s hero presently has 5,061 Test runs at a 35.89 average. With the ball, he has 174 wickets and is one of the top all-rounders in the world.

In limited-overs cricket, the 30-year-old has appeared in 101 ODIs for England, scoring 2871 runs at a 40.43 average. In 50-over cricket, the left-handed hitter has hit 21 fifties and three centuries. The documentary is anticipated to shed light on his famed Headingley exploits as well as some of his off-field ambitions. Stokes will lead England in a three-match Test series against England, with the opening match taking place at Lord’s on June 2.
