Ben Stokes’ retirement from ODIs should send a message to administrations about the crammed schedules. The best players can only do so much. Something has to give.

Markram to Stokes, reverse-sweep, and Stokes is lbw!


And so ends one of the great England ODI careers.

Ben Stokes lbw b Markram 5 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45
