Ben Stokes focused on Ashes series win after heroics

Ben Stokes says he will only take satisfaction from his heroic innings at Headingley if England can complete a series turnaround to win the Ashes. He hit an unbeaten 135 as England snatched victory on Sunday from a seemingly impossible position in Leeds to level the series at 1-1. "I don't think it's completely sunk in; the main reason is we have two games to go," Stokes said. After England was beaten in the first Test in Edgbaston and was held to a draw Lord's, they needed to avoid defeat at Headingley to stay in with a chance of regaining the Ashes. That looked unlikely when Stuart Broad's dismissal on Sunday left England 73 runs short of a target of 359 with only one wicket left, but Stokes led the way to a remarkable victory.
