Ben Stokes To Be Featured In New Documentary
Cricket fans can look forward to a documentary on the life and career of New Zealand-born England all-rounder Ben Stokes.
According to a prominent UK news page, Stokes has for the past 18 months been working on the secret project. He’ll also be accompanied by a film crew during March’s Caribbean tour.
The feature-length documentary is the work of television production company Whisper and major sponsor Red Bull, and details his time on as well as away from the pitch.
The documentary will include the death of his father, former NZ rugby league star Ged Stokes, who passed away in December 2020. Also in the limelight will be the mental health break Stokes took last summer, as well as the challenges he faced resulting from a longstanding finger injury.
Stokes recently declined an invitation to compete in this year’s Indian Premier League. He’s also declared that going forward, Test cricket will be his number one focus, beginning with the three-match mini tour against the West Indies.
In addition to shining a spotlight on the next phase of Stokes’ illustrious career, the documentary will reportedly also be taking stock of his many highs and lows.
Also set to be re-lived will be the all-rounder’s stunning summer of 2019, when he helped England to a World Cup victory at Lord’s. His early years and family life following his move from New Zealand to Cumbria at the age of 12 will also be detailed as part of the highly anticipated film.
