Englishmen cherish the Ashes of 2019 for Ben Stokes' heroics at Headingley, but the gem of an all-rounder had earlier scythed a ton in the Lord's Test as well. Stokes not only revitalized England's second innings alongside Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow but also raised his 7th Test century in the process. He hoisted off-spinner Nathan Lyon for towering sixes off balls pitching in the scruffed footmarks, reiterating his worth as an X-factor player.
