Fired-Up Ben Stokes Drops Massive F-Bomb On Twitter
You win the impossible Test match, you earn the right to say what you want to say.
This, apparently, is the mentality champion England all-rounder Ben Stokes has adopted this morning -- after steering England to the most incredible comeback victory in the third Ashes Test at Headingley.
Yes, Stokes was a little, let's say, loose with his language when he tweeted the following around midnight England time:
And bugger the fine!
Stokes is quite the cricketer these days. The Kiwi-born 28-year-old pretty much single-handedly won the One Day World Cup for England, and now he's rescued England from the brink of Ashes oblivion.
So as we say, he probably deserves a little social media leeway today, even if he's not quite passing the role model test with his language.
In fairness, Stokes also used the same tweet to heap love on Jack Leach, the England spinner and number 11 batsman, who bravely held on at the other end, scoring just one run in the 76-run last-wicket partnership which won the match.
Stokes called him a "legend". And earlier, he had a bit of laugh, calling on Ashes series sponsor Specsavers to sponsor Leach.
Well, it was all because Leach was having problems with his glasses throughout his innings. Apparently they were misting up.
And in very British scenes, he repeatedly cleaned them, looking more like a professor or suburban accountant than a man playing a part in one of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time.
Anyway, Ben Stokes is feeling pretty good right now and tweeting about it in colourful language. And the Aussies?
We're kind of more like this fella.
