Wood reveals he missed Stokes’ Headingley heroics due to antenatal class

For Stokes, he will only derive satisfaction when he takes his side to an Ashes win.

Jack Leach and Ben Stokes combined to deliver one of England's most memorable test match victories last week, but the tail ender turned cult hero has lifted the lid on a odd new superstition to arise from their match-winning partnership.

In fact Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce jokingly said that Stokes can play for the Magpies next week in the wake of club's 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur. We have an fantastic support and I didn't get told until after about everyone taking their shoes off, but they are your 12th man.

"I think we are very aware as a team and as players that we have a responsibility to inspire the next generation of cricketers".
