Ben Stokes hit a stunning unbeaten century as England defeated Australia by one wicket to win an epic third Ashes Test at Headingley on Sunday.

England, bowled out for just 67 in their first innings, needed 73 more runs to reach a victory target of 359 when last man, the bespectacled Jack Leach came into bat.

But Leach held firm before Stokes hit the winning runs by flaying Pat Cummins for four that saw the all-rounder finish on 135 not out.

In July, Stokes also starred for England in the ICC Cricket World Cup final against New Zealand at Lord's after he played a knock of 84 and eventually also played a crucial role in the Super Over- Where they won in terms of boundaries scored to clinch the trophy for the first time after the Super Over scores were level.

Here's how Twitter reacted to yet another historic win for England:

Invincible Stokes!

Is this the greatest Test match of all time as well?



What a mindblowing match this was!

Test cricket is well and truly alive!

Will you remember Ben Stokes' knock for a lifetime?

Anything more to describe the match?

What a year Stokes has had!
