‘Beard of Botham’ Ben Stokes set for Beard of Year shortlist
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that hirsute England cricketer Ben Stokes is set for inclusion on the Beard of the Year shortlist announced on 25th November after an outstanding performance with bat and ball in the First Test against Bangladesh.
Stokes has so far taken four wickets and scored a potentially decisive 85 runs in England’s second innings.
The campaigners say that Stokes has the ‘beard of Botham’ arguably England’s greatest all-rounder.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we reckon that Stokes, who doesn’t always have a beard, gains confidence with a beard and that leads to match winning performances.
