England Test captain Stokes’ documentary to release on August 26

Titled "Ben Stokes: Phoenix from the Ashes", the documentary has been created with Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes (best known for World War I film 1917) who features on-screen to discuss the highs and lows of the cricket icon's record-breaking career across a series of interviews.

The documentary film has been wary of geopolitics. While it mentions the presence of Uighur militants in Afghanistan and Turkey, it skirts any reference to Pakistan whose military, under pressure from Beijing, has carried out aerial strikes against ETIM militant camps in China’s tribal areas.
