The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Cricket -

Ben Stokes, who guided Eng­land to vic­tory over New Zealand in the fi­nal of the World Cup, has been nom­i­nated as New Zealan­der of the Year.

Cameron Ben­nett, the award’s chief judge, said of the Eng­land all-rounder: “Hav­ing been born in Christchur­ch, where his par­ents now live, and with Maori ancestry, there’s clearly a few Ki­wis who think we can still claim him”.
