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

Team India's best chance to win in South Africa | PITCHIGH

For a country with long memories of watching its fighters revolt at high speeds while playing outside, a photo of Alan Donald Scorcher defending Sachin Tendulkar in a Boxing Day Test in Kingsmead, Durban in 1996 after being battered. Two incisions on all fours through cap and tip still hurt.India was in awe of scoring 100 and 66 in the two rounds in three days. Venkatesh Prasad's brilliant 10-point tour was a footnote."Forget the rhino, save India," shouted a banner in Protea's hand at the booth.However, as Indian fans, we are good at finding the antidote to painful losses. In it, the two sections stand out as countermeasures to Donald's hegemony.Back to Kingsmead. Then, San Esteban Day Test. Second in the series 2010-2011. South Africa, chasing the 303 for victory, we're riding steady at 123-3 as Ashwell Prince and Jacques Kallis build a partnership. Enter S Sreesanth. The hobo and the wizard. He made a delivery that was mounted from the length and saw Kallis turning into a high jump to stop him. The ball came out of his gloves and headed towards Verinder Sehwag. The hosts collapsed and India tied the chain.2018 cut in Johannesburg, the third test between India and South Africa. The number of times members of the two teams traveled in the middle to check on the well-being of the batter was almost greater than in the stands.Michael Holding of the West Indies ranked the launch at number 2 out of 100 and one comment described it as "ridiculous." Holding demanded the referees cancel the match.India did not have any of these. Between Lord's 2014 and Wanderer's 2018, he only won Tests in Asia and the West Indies. They were thirsty for "blood". South Africa's Jaspreet Poumrah hit Dean Elgar (who scored 86 points in the second half) in the helmet. South was amazed. This version did the job of rocking the South African locker room. From 124/2, chasing 241, South Africa was eliminated for 177, with Mohamed Elshamy making a frenzy from 5 to 28 innings. The backbone of Team India, led by Kohli, has grown.In a way, the 2018 Johannesburg Test, which India won by 63 runs, was the benchmark for the way Kohli and Shastri played abroad. In that series, they were in good shape in Cape Town and Centurion to win, but faltered at crucial moments, as they did in England later in 2018.Instead of staying ahead and playing catchy cricket, he might have attacked too much and run dribbling.South Africa has always been a difficult place for Indians to visit. Speed and bounce like Australia. But unlike Australia, they don't attack all the time.They frustrate you with impunity, and after you score enough, they will kill.Many believe that the Indian team that is currently on tour in South Africa has the best chance of winning the Frontier Final. South Africa is a place where India has not won a series. They were close in 2010-11 when they drew 1-1 and were in the winning position in Cape Town in Test 3, but the unimaginable MS captain Dhoni let the hosts escape.No Indian leader has invested in speed and aggression quite as much as Kohli. From the Johannesburg test in 2018, the following individuals lost their names in South Africa: Hashem Amla, AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis, Vernon Philander, and Morne Morkel.India still has the core of the team that competed in 2018 and has an arsenal of bowling not only to offside, but also to frustrate and do well to catch up, despite the poor mid-level performance.When the ball stops swinging, Indian bowlers have the mentality of throwing the stem to the stump with two middle wickets, a square leg, only two slips, a circular field in the offside zone, waiting for the hack, and then forward. throat.Regardless of Omicron, South Africa was hit by racial scandals and an exodus of good cricketers who accepted Kolpak's deals in search of a better life in the UK or New Zealand.Cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar, Zuhair Khan, Dinesh Karthik, But South African captain Elgar fired the first warning shot. "I'd rather be in my locker room than in India knowing they have to face the bowlers." and Harbhajan Singh feels this is India's best chance to win in South Africa.Also Read -  Indias series in South Africa to be played without fans, say CSA

How does luck change in the game in 20 days! On December 30, India kicked off their powerful South Africa Tour, recording a 113-round overall win over South Africa in their first Test at Centurion. His dream of securing his first Test series win in South Africa seemed closer than ever.Less than a month later, the India tour risks turning into a nightmare. After their dream of the "Test" was shattered by a 2-1 decision in favor of the owners of the land, their captain announced his resignation. The troubled tourists took another blow when they lost 31 times in their first ODI in Paarl.With questions emerging after each loss, India will be desperate to return to survive in the ODI series when they are even more impressive than South Africa in their second ODI at the same venue on Friday.Less than a month later, the India tour risks turning into a nightmare. After their dream of the "Test" was shattered by a 2-1 decision in favor of the owners of the land, their captain announced his resignation. The troubled tourists took another blow when they lost 31 times in their first ODI in Paarl.With questions emerging after each loss, India will be desperate to return to survive in the ODI series when they are even more impressive than South Africa in their second ODI at the same venue on Friday.In the absence of the brilliant batsman, the Indian was completely lost after the runner-up in the 92nd wicket between Shekhar Dhawan (79) and Virat Kohli (51), which saw them chasing 297. The year-old has been the subject of much controversy, and the logic of replacing him with Ayer is sure, who made his ODI debut, will cause controversy.India clearly lacks confidence in Ayer's ability to break out internationally, which has raised a serious question mark against the Madhya Pradesh cricketer being considered a multi-skilled player to replace Hardik Pandya. Although the Proteas' batsmen easily plundered the run, the captain did not contact Iyer once.Also Read - Tough times made me stronger but needed calm and clarity, says Shikhar Dhawan
