Ben Stokes’ book, On fire, has grabbed special attention nowadays as the excerpts opining about India’s performance against England in the semifinals in the ICC World Cup 2019 are getting viral.
The fans and the experts have highly misused and twisted Ben’s words and wrote what he himself did never write. People mentioned that Ben wrote regarding India’s deliberate win over England to conspire against Pakistan. However, Ben has totally denied saying that one will never find such words in his book.
He just meant to share the day he experienced as bizarre from India’s side who performed really worst and lost the match.
“MS Dhoni showed no intent to win the game against us, Arguably the way MS Dhoni played when he came in with 112 runs needed from 11 overs was even stranger. He appeared more intent on singles than sixes. Even with a dozen balls remaining, India could still have won,” Ben Stokes writes in his book.
“The way Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli played was mystifying. I know that we bowled brilliantly well during this period, but the way they went about their batting just seemed bizarre. They allowed their team to get so far behind the game. They showed no desire to put any pressure back onto our team, content instead to just drift along, a tactic that was clearly playing into our hands.” Stokes added, who played a key role in England’s successful World Cup campaign.

On being questioned upon the source where Ben Stokes opened up about India’s conspiracy against Pakistan in World Cup 2019 and deliberately losing to England in the semifinals, England’s player maintained all of the accuses and allegations as a clickbait or twisting of words which one will never find as they never have been written.
You won’t find it cause I have never said it… it’s called “twisting of words” or “clickbait”
