Ben Stokes top-scored with 89 in England’s 311 for eight, held a splendid catch in the outfield and took two for 12, including the last wicket, as England won with 61 balls left.

In Match 1 of Cricket World Cup (CWC 2019), Ben Stokes featured in all divisions as England started their mission to win the World Cup with a 104-run whipping of South Africa in the competition opener at the Oval on Thursday. The all-rounder top-scored with 89 in England’s 311 for eight, held a splendid catch in the outfield and took two for 12, including the last wicket, as England won with 61 balls left. Jofra Archer did the early harm with the ball, the quick bowler taking three for 27 out of seven overs. Barbados-born Archer, who only qualified for England in March, made his presence felt even before he had taken a wicket with a bouncer that beat Hashim Amla for pace and crashed into the grille of the helmet, with the veteran opener retiring hurt on five. Archer then reduced the Proteas to 44 for two.

Aiden Markram edged to Joe Root at slip and South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis fell for only five when he top-edged a snare to long leg. Be that as it may, Quinton de Kock kept the Proteas in the chase, in spite of the fact that the opener was fortunate when on 25 he made a move from leg-spinner Adil Rashid onto his stumps just for the safeguards to remain put.The dashing left-hander proceeded to finish a 58-ball fifty yet holed out off quick bowler Liam Plunkett for 68.

Rassie van der Dussen then make exactly 50 without pressing on when he miscued Archer to mid-on .

His leave saw Amla come back with South Africa battling at 167 for six in the 32nd over.

The game was everything except up for South Africa when a retreating and plunging Stokes held a splendid one-gave get in the profound to expel Andile Phehlukwayo.

Amla’s courageous exertion to save the innings finished on 13 when he was gotten behind off Plunkett’s slower-ball bouncer and Stokes completed the match when Imran Tahir edged him to Root.

Feeds was one of four England batsmen who got to 50 on a precarious surface, with chief Eoin Morgan (57), Jason Roy (54) and Root (51) hard and fast not long after in the wake of achieving the milestone.

Britain lost a wicket second ball before Roy and Root shared a remain of 106 that was equalled by Morgan and Stokes.

Du Plessi picked to field regardless of being without harmed lead Dale Steyn and took the irregular choice to give leg-spinner Tahir the first finished.

The 40-year-old, the most established player in the competition, struck second ball when Jonny Bairstow was gotten behind by De Kock for a brilliant duck.

Roy and Root fixed the harm yet were expelled when all around set as England lost two wickets for four keeps running in four balls to be 111 for three.

Morgan, whose forceful methodology has been representative of England’s ascent to the highest point of the one-day universal rankings after their woeful first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup, lit up the portable fire stick’s initial two sixes off progressive balls from Lungi Ngidi before he also was gotten in the profound.

Left-hander Stokes saw his 79-ball thump end in the penultimate over when gotten at third man following a turn around hit off paceman Ngidi (three for 66).

Stokes’ rocket throw from the deep ran out Dwaine Pretorius, he pouched a straightforward catch to remove JP Duminy and then claimed two wickets in as many balls to finish South Africa off.

That, as England captain Eoin Morgan put it, is called having “a full day out”.

“When he does that it’s extremely entertaining and great for the game,” said Morgan. “We see a lot of him in training, doing stuff like that all the time. You just shake your head.”

Former England captain Michael Vaughan said: “Any team’s success is generally geared around the all-rounder. Ben Stokes finding form in the first game of the World Cup is a huge boost for England.”
