Stokes slams record 17 sixes, five in a row


Ben Stokes hit a County Championship record 17 sixes in smashing 161 on his first Durham appearance of the summer, at Worcester on Friday. All-rounder Stokes raced to his ton in 64 balls, sharing 220 for the fifth wicket with David Bedingham (135). The England Test captain brought up his century - the fastest in first-class cricket by a Durham player - with five successive sixes off Josh Baker. Durham declared on 580-6 and Worcestershire were 169-6 at stumps. Set batters Ed Barnard (55) and captain Brett D’Oliveira (41) fell just before the close to leave Durham in complete control.
