In a recent incident, England’s Ben Stokes, along with teammates Liam Livingstone and the strength coach Andy Mitchell, narrowly escaped a car accident while travelling in an auto. Stokes also captured the scene on his phone.
Here’s what Ben Stokes said on the incident:
“So, me and Livi [Liam Livingstone] are pretty big lads, and we also had our strength and conditioning coach, Mitch [Andy Mitchell], who is even bigger than us. Now, tuk-tuk’s aren’t very big. So, you can imagine that we were pretty squashed in the back of his tuk-tuk. This is the one I got [shows the video on his phone]. We were just running up to the roundabout here. Does not slow down and, yeah, there he goes!”

Stokes came out of retirement to play in the 2023 ODI World Cup but a hip injury from the gym sidelined him for the first two matches. His return against South Africa did not pack much of a batting punch.
Meanwhile, the England team seems like a mere shadow of their former championship-winning selves in the ongoing 2023 World Cup. They have lost three out of four matches, with their lone win against Bangladesh.
