On Day two of the ongoing Test match against West Indies, the skipper of the England cricket team was left in splits by looking at his teammate Ben Stokes after the latter appeared to have an accident due to which a stain appeared on his pants.
Ben Stokes and Joe Root were standing in the slip cordon before Joe Root started laughing after seeing the brown stains on Ben Stokes’ pants. At first, Ben Stokes tried to hide the stains but soon he realized that his efforts were going in vain. Later, he was seen sporting a sheepish smile while trying to avoid the embarrassment.
Meanwhile, Ben Stokes was not spared on social media as well, as the hilarious incident was captured on TV cameras. The video of the same has been going viral on social media. Here, check out the video:
Don't worry @GaryLineker, you're now not the only one to have an 'accident' on the pitch. 😳

Well, for the unversed, Gary referred to his own infamous incident on the pitch during the 1990 World Cup, when he pooed himself on the ground.
However, Ben Stokes was quick to clear the air and revealed how he sat in split coffee. He wrote:
“Sat in spilt coffee FYI”
Here, check out the reply of Ben Stokes:
