Ben Stokes played an unbeaten knock of 52 runs in 49 balls against Pakistan in the final. 

In the 2019 ODI World Cup, Stokes played an unbeaten knock of 84 runs in the final against New Zealand.

World Champion Stokes was once known as the 'Bad Boy' and he was even behind bars. 

In the 2016 T20 World Cup final, Stokes became a villain after he conceded four consecutive sixes in the last over. 

West Indies needed 19 runs in the last over and Carlos Brathwaite launched four sixes off Stokes' bowling. 

In 2017, Stokes was gripped in a controversy due to his involvement in a bar fight. 

He had to serve jail time and thus people started calling him 'Bad Boy'.

After a year, Stokes was proven not guilty and thus began his journey to greatness.
