We Don't Really Fear Too Much To Be Honest: Ben Stokes
England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who hammered the quickest 99 in the One-day International (ODI) history, off just 52 balls, said England's fearless cricket helped them beat India in the second match here on Friday.
"It was a better wicket than the one in the first game. Over the years, we have set big totals, we have chased big totals. We don't really fear too much to be honest. We don't fear any total to be honest," said Stokes after England's six-wicket win at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
"We always go out and try to play as positively as we can. If we feel we are stuck in a situation, we always encourage our players to take the positive option. It could have been easy to rein ourselves in after the last game but from a personal and team point of view, it was important to play as we do," added Stokes who hit 10 sixes in his knock.
The left-handed batsman, who has been promoted to No. 3 in the batting order said that they wanted to take on the spinners and had planned to target them.
