first_imgLondon: Nominated for New Zealander of the Year award, England’s World Cup hero Ben Stokes has graciously turned it down, saying Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson is the “worthy recipient” of the accolade. The 28-year-old Stokes was born in New Zealand’s Christchurch but moved to England aged 12, going on to establish himself in the England setup. The all-rounder was named Man of the Match after he broke Kiwi hearts with his gallant show in the epic World Cup final recently.

There are people who deserve this recognition more and have done a lot more for the country of New Zealand.” Stokes amassed 465 runs and took seven wickets in the World Cup as England edged out New Zealand in a thriller, decided by boundary count, at Lord’s on July 14 to clinch their maiden title.

He should be revered as a kiwi legend. He led his team in this World Cup with distinction and honour. “He was the player of the tournament and an inspirational leader of men. He shows humility and empathy to every situation and is an all-round good bloke. He typifies what it is to be a New Zealander. He would be a worthy recipient of this accolade. New Zealand, fully support him. He deserves it and gets my vote,” Stokes concluded. In the final, Stokes smashed 84 runs to help England level the scores at 241 and take the match to the Super Over. Along with Jos Buttler, Stokes then plundered 15 runs in six balls.last_img
