Former Pakistan batsman Faisal Iqbal has called England all-rounder Ben Stokes the “real Ironman” following his outstanding performance in the second Test against the West Indies.

Stokes was named Man of the Match after he scored 176 in the first innings and an unbeaten 78 off 57 balls in the second innings. He also took three wickets in total as England won the match in Manchester by 113 runs and levelled the series at 1-1.

In addition to praising Stokes, Faisal also heaped praise on pace bowler Stuart Broad, who took six wickets in the match.

“Congratulations England for a win as expected in this Test match, indeed a strong comeback after losing the 1st Test, a collective team effort but Stuart Broad [made] his present felt to all and no doubt Ben Stokes is a real Ironman! What a player,” Faisal said on Twitter.

The third Test between England and the West Indies will begin on Friday in Manchester.
