Stevens likes look of Stokes

Wednesday, 7 September 2011

Evergreen Kent all-rounder Darren Stevens has compared England new boy Ben Stokes to Kevin Pietersen and backed the Durham man to light up the international arena.

Stokes, 20, is currently part of England's squad for the one-day international series against India in place of Pietersen, who has been rested for the five matches.

Having made his international debut against Ireland a couple of weeks ago, the all-rounder was included on his home ground in Saturday's series opener at the Riverside.
He was denied the chance to impress that day as rain forced the encounter to be abandoned, but 35-year-old Stevens is confident Stokes will shine in international cricket.
