英格蘭隊長本-斯托克斯回到科克茅斯板球俱樂部

英格蘭板球隊長本-斯托克斯回到了他的根,訪問了他從12歲起就在那裡打球的俱樂部。

他的訪問是在他帶領國家隊在希丁利取得對新西蘭令人印象深刻的勝利的四天後進行的。

這位31歲的球員說。"我總是喜歡回到這裡。我一直非常公開地講述科克茅斯板球俱樂部對我職業生涯的影響。

"我認為板球一直是球迷最容易接觸到的運動之一,他們可以掌握他們在電視屏幕上看到的人。

"作為球員,我們有更大的責任,不僅僅是在場上打球。"

當被問及他在年輕時是否曾夢想成為國家隊隊長時,他說。"沒有,我甚至沒有考慮過這個問題。

"我可能只是在想我在那個年齡段第二天會做什麼。"

"他說:"我們有一個蓬勃發展的青少年部分,並且已經有很多年了。

"本在其中發揮了很大作用,儘管他現在不在本地。他在世界舞台上的表現對所有的孩子都是一種巨大的鼓舞和影響。"


England cricket captain Ben Stokes went back to his roots with a visit to the club where he played from the age of 12.

His visit came four days after he led his country to an impressive win over New Zealand at Headingley.

The 31-year-old said: "I always enjoy coming back here. I've been very public about the effect Cockermouth Cricket Club had had on my career.

"I think cricket has always been one of the most accessible sports for fans to get hold of the people they see on their TV screens.

"As players, we've got a greater responsibility that just being out there and playing the game."

Asked whether he had dreamed of captaining his country when he was a youngster, he said: "No. I didn't even give it a second thought.

"I was probably just thinking about what I'd be doing the next day at that age."

"We've got a thriving junior section and have had for many years," he said.

"Ben plays a large part in that even though he's not in the local area now. His presence on the world stage is a massive inspiration and influence to all the children."
