England's World Cup hero Ben Stokes ended a sensational 2019 by claiming the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year prizeBen Stokes, Cricket World Cup winner, received an exciting award for 2019 with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. Immediately thanked those who helped him forget during the year 2018.Stokes performance in the World Cup final, which England won in an unprecedented number of countdowns against New Zealand, and his third ashes test helped him win the general vote of the award, six times before Lewis Hamilton, Formula One world champion, and world champion 200 years have Asher Smith, at a party on Sunday in Aberdeen.In 2018, Stokes was acquitted of quarrels charges after an accident outside a nightclub in Bristol in September the previous year. "Two years ago, it was a difficult time for me in my life," said Stokes, 28, while accepting the award on stage, "I had a lot of people who helped me do it."The award ceremony was a dramatic start when former Scottish rugby international Dodi Weir received the Helen Rollason Award. Weir, 49, was diagnosed with motor neuron disease in 2016 and has since spent time working to raise awareness about the condition."It is ridiculous," said Ware, who won 61 matches with Scotland. "Being a Scottish soccer player in the 1990s, this is the closest ever to a Cup!"Read More: ICC T20I rankings: Virat Kohli storms into top 10 after heroics vs West Indies
