India first appointed a coach for the cricket team in 1992 and has had a total o
Ben Stokes of England bats during day five of 2nd Investec Test match between England and New Zealand England's persistence with Ben Stokes is one of many areas where fans' patience with their side had been wearing thin. The supposed all-rounder had performed below expectations with both bat and ball and justifying his selection was becoming increasingly difficult. And then Lord's happened.

But not many have prepared for the Fair Play award that is at stake. With CSK winning five times in the last sev
