England captain Ben Stokes was named the ICC Men's Test Cricketer of the Year 2022 for his sensational leadership in red-ball cricket. Stokes also scored 870 runs at an average of 36.25 and took 26 wickets at an average of 31.19 in Test cricket in 2022.

Stokes - along with new England head coach Brendon McCullum - completely transformed the form, fortunes and style of England Men's Test team.

Players and teams have played extremely attacking cricket before. But Stokes has delivered a new level with his consistent commitment to England's entertaining and aggressive approach with bat, ball and on the field.

Since taking over as England captain, Stokes has led the team to nine wins from

10 Tests, completing series victories over New Zealand and South Africa at home, beating India in the one-off postponed Test to level the series at 2-2, and hammering Pakistan 3-0 away from home - England's best ever margin of victory in the country.

Prior to his appointment as captain, England had been beaten in each of their four most recent completed series and had won just one of their previous 17 Tests.

As a captain, Stokes was hugely impressive, setting clever traps with his fields and utilising his bowlers brilliantly throughout the year. He was also fair but decisive with his selection decisions, bringing in new faces when required but not afraid to leave out form players if the conditions merited it.
