It's quite hilarious that here we r comparing him with shakib who doesn't even get selected to play for kkr on a consistent basis.
Stokes in the league of Botham? Are you crazy? How many test has he played and what is the statistics? You could at best compare him with Flintoff but he got a long way to reach at the level of Kallis or Waugh. For How many seasons did you witness Ben Stokes performing consistently? He is just another Lance Klusener who also started with a bang and gleaned praises earlier in his career.

Your overtly ardent desire to undermine our team is not only disingenuous but preposterous.
