The footage of Ben Stokes cracking the final boundary of his 135 not out and the Headingley crowd behind him rising in beer-soaked celebration in 2019 is etched into the mind of every cricket fan. As Joe Root brought up his third hundred of the series against India at the same venue in 2021, the same stand produced another wonderful moment of mass jubilation. As Yorkshire's own flicked towards midwicket off his pads, the crowd were not sure how many runs Root and Bairstow would manage to scamper. As the camera pans around and the ball oozes towards the boundary, the fans produce a Mexican wave of celebration as they gradually realise the England great has done it again.
