Sunday was a historic day for English Cricket as they won the Cricket World Cup for the very first time.

From his ‘catch of the century’ in the opening match against South Africa to an incredible innings against New Zealand, Ben Stokes played a vital role in England’s success.

Before the tournament started, Red Bull put Stokes’ all-round attributes to the test, challenging him with bat, ball & skills in the field. It was these skills which proved to be absolutely crucial for England throughout the tournament.

How far do international sporting superstars go to be the best? We pushed England and Durham all-rounder, Ben Stokes, to his limits in an abandoned, industrial warehouse in the North of England to see what he really had!

From catching to batting, three challenges were designed to test different aspects of his technical and physical prowess. We wanted to see what makes Ben the pro athlete he is and sets him above the rest.
