Alex Lees said that it was due to the tremendous spell of Ben Stokes that the England team was able to make a comeback in this match.
Chasing the target of 378 runs against India, Alex Lees played a tremendous inning. He scored 56 runs in just 46 balls and hit eight fours during this period. Lees, along with Jack Crawley, added 107 runs for the first wicket. The result of his excellent batting was that England put absolute pressure on the Indian bowlers.

ENG vs IND: The bowlers turned the tide of the match – Ben Stokes
Alex Lees praised the bowling of his captain Ben Stokes. After the day’s play was over, he said “In my opinion, our bowling made a comeback in the match. This morning Ben Stokes’ bowling turned the game on our side.
This was the turning point of this Test match for me. Had Stokes not bowled so well, we would have been chasing 450–500 runs. In my opinion, the way the bowlers bowled this morning was the turning point of the match”.
Let us tell you that in the second innings of the Indian team, only Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant could bat nicely and the rest of the batsmen were a flop. This was the reason why the Indian team could not make a big score.
