Ben Stokes, Neesham prove determination is everything!

The England cricketer Ben Stokes and New Zealand's Jimmy Neesham have become stars in their own right in the world of sports.  After Sunday's ICC World Cup final match, former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman took to Twitter to hail the cricketers in no small measure.

"Jimmy Neesham was thinking about quitting cricket a year ago and nearly won the World Cup for his country today.  Ben Stokes after what happened in the T20 WC final in 2016, won the match for his country today.  Lesson sport teaches- Never give up and keep dreaming," Laxman said.  

Michael Vaughan exclaimed that Stokes has scripted a great story.  "What an incredible comeback from adversity. He won’t know yet but over the years will understand how many kids will be trying to play exactly like him," he tweeted out.  

Piers Morgan spoke of what makes Stokes' victory a special achiever.  "So many England heroes but one deserves special mention.  Blamed for costing us the T20 World Cup, then dropped & vilified for a drunken street brawl, Stokes today achieved the redemption his hard work, determination & will to atone deserved. So chuffed for him," he tweeted out.  

It was a nail-biting final match and cricket lovers across the world had their day on Sunday.
