Ben Stokes was born, raised, and attended school in Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand, where he remained until he was 12 years old. Ben's father, Gerard Stokes, later relocated to northern England in 2003.

Ben Stokes has always been active in sports. The slick all-arounder played rugby in addition to cricket while he was a student.

Ben Stokes had to decide between rugby and cricket, and since he was good at both sports, it wasn't an easy decision. But he made a bold decision to play cricket instead of rugby because he was enjoying it more.

Ben Stokes was a natural talent, but his father lacked the funds to devote to his training.

Very early in his life, Clare Ratcliffe and Ben Stokes were united in marriage. Stokes now has two children of his own.

Ben Stokes is seen donning a sports bra-like garment with a GPS tracker attached to the back. Stokes tweeted about it as well:

Nearly every cricket player in the world has a nickname, and after striking the locker and fracturing his finger, his England colleagues began jokingly referring to him as Rocky. He was also known as The Hurt Locker.

Ben Stokes had numerous tattoos on his body because he loved getting them. Being the greatest that you can be is only possible if you have the ambition to be a champion and have no fear of failing, according to the tattoo on his left arm.

Ben Stokes couldn't help but attend World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) when they came knocking to the United Kingdom. Stokes received the 'Exceptional Star' welcome, which added to the special nature of his day.

Stokes was dismissed on his first ball in the third Twenty20 International (T20I) game against the West Indies on March 13, 2014, at Kensington.
