London, April.5 (ANI): England coach Trevor Bayliss has backed shattered Ben Stokes to bounce back from the harrowing World T20 final experience and also expressed his desire to see the all-rounder putting himself in pressure situations again.

A visibly devastated Stokes was left squatting with his head in his hands on the ground after he failed to replicate his death-bowling heroics, displayed during clashes against Sri Lanka and New Zealand, in the high-octane finale.

It was in the last over when West Indies required 19 more runs to win but Carlos Brathwaite produced his batting master class and hit the bowler for four successive sixes to steer his side to their second World T20 title.

The match also saw Marlon Samuels using abusive and offensive language at Stokes after their seven wickets win over England.

According to Bayliss, Stoke was one of those blokes who could come again to bowl the last over again.

Insisting that no one would blame Stokes for the defeat, Bayliss said that the former is the heart and soul of the team and that the England cricket would flourish if they managed to produce more of such type of players,the Guardian reported.

Bayliss further urged his countrymen not to blame Stoke’s leadership and efforts he had made for the team, saying that the 24-year-old always give his 100 percent whenever he plays.

With the defeat, England’s hopes to become the first country to win the coveted crown twice were also dented. (ANI)
