England on a winning streak under new captaincy

Stokes, who took over for Joe Root as England’s Test captain, has radically turned around the tables in a short period of time. England has won six of their last seven Test matches under the all-rounder’s leadership, and they are confident going into their three-match series against Pakistan against Pakistan.

In an interview , Atherton expressed his high expectations for Stokes as England’s Test captain. In order to convince Liam Livingstone to be available for Test cricket, the former opener believes Ben Stokes played a major role.

Atherton said, “The importance of Stokes to this project, it’s a bit like Virat Kohli in India. Kohli is the most important cricketer in India, and therefore probably the world, and he was very much: ‘I still think Test cricket is a worthwhile thing to be involved in’, and therefore young players followed that.”

Continuing further, he said “Stokes saying to Livingstone: ‘Forget the Big Bash and the £150,000, come and play Test cricket for us in Pakistan’. He’s a very hard man to say no to Ben Stokes. So having a player of that stature, charisma and importance, that still values the five-day game, is a big thing.”
