<p>The last Test was won by England by 49 runs on Monday, bringing the five-match Ashes series to a 2-2 tie. England captain Ben Stokes is really pleased with his team.

<p>“I believe that the overall series score of 2-2 is a true representation of two very, very excellent teams competing during a five-match series. The quality of the cricket that has been played has been excellent. Being 2-0 down is a very difficult position to recover from, so being able to claim that we have tied the series while knowing we needed to win the last three matches, Stokes remarked on Monday following the conclusion of the fifth Test.</p>
<p>“I couldn’t be more proud of the squad for what they accomplished after coming here and playing the way we did. The only thing I could have wanted for more than getting the urn back was that we keep playing the way we have over the last 15 months,” he concluded.</p>
<p>Stokes thinks that England’s success in the series ought to have drawn in new followers and motivated a generation to take up the game.</p>
<p>“I believe that we have been successful in attracting a new audience to Test cricket, particularly during the last seven weeks. I really believe that this series was what Test cricket needed. You couldn’t keep your eyes off the cricket as two top-notch teams squared up against one other. Each session had a unique game. We were in charge first, followed by Australia, he remarked.</p>
<p>Stokes expects that the 2023 Ashes will have the same effect on young people all throughout the country as they did on him in 2005. During the 2005 Ashes, which are considered as the most competitive Test series, Stokes was 14 years old.</p>
<p>“Everyone who attended the games and purchased tickets had a great time playing cricket. All you can hope for as a spectator at an international sporting event is that. I really hope that we have motivated a new generation. I want someone of the same age as me would say, “That’s what I want to be doing when I’m 21 or 22,” the all-rounder said. “I think back to 2005 and what that series meant for me as a young person.</p>
