‘The fear of failure does not exist’: Stokes was thrilled with England’s 3-0 victory over Pakistan

Ben Stokes believes that removing the fear of failure was behind England’s remarkable turnaround in Test cricket and the year it ended they became the first team in history to claim a 3-0 series sweep in Pakistan.

An eight-wicket win was secured on the fourth morning in Karachi to take nine wins from 10 Tests under Stokes and head coach Brendon McCollum. Fittingly, the captain was in the middle when Ben Duquette crashed the winning boundary to repair a target of 167 that evaporated in just 28.1.

Stokes was a world record attempt, the 108th attempt of his Test career to surpass McCollum’s tally from his playing days. But while he wasn’t able to clear the ropes in 38 minutes of play, that—plus a series-record 5.5 earned run average—summed up an aspect that freed him from the burden of consequence.

It won’t really sink in until we get home or in the New Year, but we understand what we did is very special. To win 3-0 here, it will be something that has to be We are really proud of it.

“I think just releasing that fear of failure is why we get results. When you take that burden off individuals and the team, you see players excel and look bigger within themselves.

“Nobody worries about going out. You don’t want to go out…but when that fear of failure isn’t there, you’re not indecisive and you make better decisions.”

“It’s a great time to be in this dressing room and play for England. I just encourage everyone to come every day and enjoy what you do. It’s obviously easier to do when we win the way we are at the moment. Jamie Anderson made us smile, and he Impressive in itself.”

The three wins – in Rawalpindi, Multan and Karachi – all came despite the virus spreading throughout the squad, with Stokes stressing this particular challenge “shows the way we’re moving and getting things going”.

It was also a tour of new stars. Harry Brook, 23, finished his first Test away tour as player of the match in Karachi and the series that followed with his third century, while Rehan Ahmed, 18, stunned everyone with seven wickets on debut and five on debut. wicket haul.

Of Ahmed, Stokes said: “It takes you back when you were a kid. Leg-Spers are a gem to have, they can change the game and we saw that yesterday afternoon when we pushed for victory.

“For an 18-year-old with the ability he has—and he’s not the ultimate article—that’s very exciting. We’ve got a good thing on our hands, let’s just let it progress and not hold it back.”

On Brock, who said he wanted to give selectors a migraine, the England captain added: “Yeah, thanks Brockie for a sore head. The way he played, the way he played, the runs he scored [468]strike rate [93] He scored on – it was unbelievable to watch. He’s a very excited man.”

The nature of England’s turnaround since last winter and the terrifying run of one win in 17 Tests saw Stokes shortlisted for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year and naturally inspires great hope that England can win back the Ashes at home. Next year.

Stokes insisted he did not want to look too far ahead given England toured New Zealand in February, but added, speaking to Sky, “Obviously I have my eyes on the Ashes and I’ve got little things about that in the back of my head.

“We will continue to grow as a team, spend more time as a unit and continue to have fun; play cricket with a smile on our faces and win as much as possible.”
