'Would Want my Sister to Marry Ben Stokes' - Twitter Celebrates England Hero

Ben Stokes scored a stunning 135 not out as England kept its Ashes hopes alive with a one-wicket win over Australia in the third test at Headingley.

Stokes scored the winning four Sunday in the afternoon session on Day 4 as England finished on 362-9 in its second innings in its chase of 359.

Here's how Twitter reacted to Ben Stokes's heroics:

Stokes was dropped by Marcus Harris at third man off Pat Cummins and survived an easy runout chance and lbw decision close to the end. The allrounder finished with 11 fours and eight sixes in one of the greatest innings by an England batter.

The teams are now level at 1-1 in the series. Australia would have secured the famous urn with a 2-0 lead and only two tests remaining in the five-match series.
