And after taking the catch, the 27-year-old simply stood to greet the crowd with one hand in the air.
After the match, he reflected: & # 39; I was a little panicked, I was further than I should have been.
The 27-year-old looked like he could hardly believe it after he came down with the ball
& # 39; I am nicknamed the claw, so luckily it got stuck. I didn't know how to respond, I shouldn't have been there, it would probably have been a routine kick if I were where I should have been! & # 39;
Stokes & incredible effort covered an excellent first World Cup match for him personally.
His 89 runs formed the backbone of England's first innings in 312 and he also intervened with two wickets in the 104-run victory.
