Ben Stokes is not comforted by nemesis Carlos Brathwaite’s shirty request.
What he said:
“[Carlos] Brathwaite came and asked me for my shirt at the end, which was pretty strange, looking back on it. You’ve just whacked me and now you want a shirt? I didn’t really need to ask him [for his]. Can’t imagine what I’d use it for. A duvet maybe?”
Ben Stokes gives up his shirt as well to Carlos Brathwaite besides four hits out of bounds.
What he really meant:
“What?!!! You’ve clubbed me for four sixes in a row in a World Cup final and you want the shirt of my back too???!!!”
What he definitely didn’t:
“ Was that a not so subliminal message from Carlos to switch to another sport like soccer, perhaps?”
