Introducing the Nighthawk!

England were told to be great entertainers. Then it was rock stars. Now Ben Stokes wants to continue his Test revolution by redefining one of the oldest roles in the game.

Stokes told Stuart Broad to pad up as a potential nightwatchman on Monday as England lost three wickets either side of tea after embarking on their quest for a record-breaking 378 to beat India at Edgbaston. Only he wasn’t a traditional nightwatchman.

Instead of taking the strike, defending and protecting a valuable batter Broad was told that, if required, he would have to go out and play in the ultra-positive way that has been a feature of his batting as well as the new England's. And he would be called the Nighthawk.
