In the first test in Abu Dhabi, he took 4–57 with the ball in Pakistan's first innings before himself scoring 57 with the bat in England's first innings; the match ultimately ended in a draw when bad light stopped play on the final day.

Something unprecedented had just happened: England had won the Cricket World Cup for the very first time since the tournament's inception in 1975. In the third test at Headingley, England appeared to be heading for certain defeat after they were bowled out for 67 in their first innings. The book is the story of Stokes' two career defining innings in the summer of 2019, the first in the world cup final, the second at Headingley some 42 days later.

After all there have been some exceptionally good tour books and logic suggests that the insights that participants could provide would serve only to improve them, but the reality invariably disappoints. On 17 June 2020, Stokes was included in England's 30-man squad to start training behind closed doors for the Test series against the West Indies.

In February 2023, he set a new record for the total number of sixes hit in a Test career, surpassing the previous tally of 107 set by his coach at the time, Brendon McCullum.

Not quite 2005 perhaps, but then I dare say there are a goodly number who would disagree with me on that.
