“No Way, You Cannot Do It Ben Stokes”- Twitterati In Shock As England All-rounder Announces Sudden Retirement From ODI Cricket

In a shocking development that has taken place in England cricket, star all-rounder Ben Stokes has decided to call it a day on his one-day international career. The all-rounder, who won the 2019 Cricket World Cup Final’s Man of the Match award, will don the England cricket team’s jersey for the last time in an ODI tomorrow against the South African cricket team at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street.

Stokes is the skipper of the England Test cricket team and an important member of the nation’s white-ball squads as well. However, it seems like he wants to focus only on Tests and T20 cricket now as he has decided to quit the 50-over format.

Fans will always remember him for his remarkable contribution to the success that the England cricket team achieved in the 50-over World Cup which happened in 2019 in the UK.


With the next 50-over World Cup set to happen in 2023, fans expected Stokes to at least remain active in the ODI format till the World Cup, but it looks like he wants another all-rounder to take his place and cement it in the playing XI by the time the next World Cup arrives.

“I will play my last game for England in ODI cricket on Tuesday in Durham. I have decided to retire from this format. This has been an incredibly tough decision to make. I have loved every minute of playing with my mates for England. We have had an incredible journey on the way,” said Stokes in a statement issued on social media.
