Former Indian opener and commentator Aakash Chopra has praised England all-rounder Ben Stokes for his performance against the West Indies in the ongoing second Test match and labelled him as the best all-rounder in the world across formats.
“At this point of time, there is no doubt in my mind that Ben Stokes is the number one all-rounder in the world across all three formats. He has an average of 43 in Tests, 59 in ODIs over the last two years,” Aakash Chopra said in a video he posted on his Youtube channel.
“He has a good bowling average across all formats as well, there is no doubt that Stokes is the number one all-rounder in the world across all formats,” he added.
Chopra picked two more cricketers in his top all-rounder’s list. While he picked Bangladesh’s Shakib-al-Hasan as one of the best all-rounders in the modern-day game, India’s Ravindra Jadeja also made this list.
