The ebullient cricketers may have made a smart impression in the first World Cup. Since his return, however, he has averaged 24 from 11 outings with a single half-century - against England in Grenada last February.

England have never won a men's World Cup, with the last of their three losing appearances in the final coming in 1992. "This edition of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup promises to be the most entertaining one yet and I can not wait to be part of this event broadcast and witness history in the making, first hand", former England batsman Nasser Hussain said.

But for multi-format players such as Stokes this may be the least of England's achievements in a home season featuring both the World Cup and an Ashes series.

Of the 12 matches, only 11 have ended with a result with one game between Zimbabwe and New Zealand being washed out.

Stokes believes that this victory will give them huge confidence ahead of the upcoming Cricket World Cup.
