Ben Stokes was very emotional and down to his knees at the end of the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup Final. England cricket team took on the West Indies cricket team in that match. The game went down to the wire. Ben Stokes was handed the responsibility to bowl the final over of the match by England cricket team captain Eoin Morgan.
Unfortunately, it was not the day of the England cricket team’s star all-rounder. He ended up conceding four consecutive sixes to West Indies team’s all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite. Soon after the fourth six was smashed, the commentator Ian Bishop called the famous line “Carlos Brathwaite, Carlos Brathwaite! Remember the name.”
Yesterday in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 match between the Pakistan cricket team and the Afghanistan cricket team, Asif Ali finished off the match with four sixes. While Asif did not smash four back-to-back sixes, he did hit four sixes in the 19th over of the game to guide Pakistan cricket team home with five wickets in hand.
Ben Stokes then remembered the famous line of Ian Bishop and posted the following tweet:
“Remember the name Asif Ali.”

During the match between the Afghanistan cricket team and the Pakistan cricket team, Ben Stokes made one more tweet that got a lot of attention. Stokes, who is enjoying the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 from his home, predicted that the final match between the England cricket team and the Pakistan cricket team.
He was not sure 100% though and thus he added a question mark and asked his fans about the prediction:
