World T20: Here’s how Ben Stokes feels weeks after being thrashed in the final by Brathwaite

London , PTI: England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was hit for four consecutive sixes in the World Twenty20 final against the West Indies that coasted his team the trophy, has said “life is back to normal now”.

West Indies hard-hitting all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite had hit Stokes for four straight sixes in the final over to finish off the game in style, needing 19 runs to win.

“Life’s back to normal, as normal as it can be for a cricketer. It was a big disappointment (losing to West Indies) but I am lucky it is a busy summer,” Stokes was quoted as saying by ‘BBC’.
Stokes expressed gratitude for the support he received despite conceding four back-to-back sixes and said he was now concentrating on playing for county side Durham. “I had two weeks off and I got back straight into it, getting ready for the two games I have for Durham before the Test match,” said Stokes.
