Stokes scored the winning four on Sunday in the afternoon session on Day 4 as England finished on 362-9 in its second innings - chasing what seemed an improbable 359 - after an unbeaten 76-run stand for the 10th wicket with Jack Leach, who scored only 1 run in the partnership.

The allrounder finished with 11 fours and eight sixes overall in one of the greatest innings by an England batter.
