At the KIA Oval, Ben Stokes dispelled any concerns that may have been raised about his ability to play 50-over cricket following a retirement from one-day internationals that lasted for 14 months. He smashed his fourth century in the format off of 76 balls, then drove on to post the best score in the format by an Englishman with 182 off of 124 to set up a crushing victory against New Zealand. His performance helped England set up a scenario in which they were able to defeat New Zealand.
