Ahead of the pre-match conference of second ODI between India and England, star all-rounder Ben Stokes on Thursday received a unique challenge. Talksport Studio (London) gave an extremely interesting challenge to the 29-year-old to add some spice to the media conference. And as expected, Stokes did not shy away from accepting it as he nailed the task in style.
Cricket and Esports – What a challenge!
The England cricketer was given an exciting task of using some particular words while answering the questions in the press conference. All the words were inspired by game, Call of Duty. The four words that Stokes had to use were ‘Warzone’, ‘No Scope’, ‘Loadout’ and ‘Gulag’.

Spontaneous Stokes with cheeky answers
While it wasn’t a very easy task, Stokes nailed it just like his performances on the field. While he had written the words in advance, he continuously kept a check and used them very smartly during the press conference. The 29-year-old very cheekily used the aforementioned words while answering the questions to media.
The fans were also amazed to see how Stokes nailed the challenge. While some pointed out that Stokes was not able to control his laughter during the conference, the others just praised the England all-rounder for accepting the task sportingly and pulling it off in style.
