Ben Stokes used profane language against a fan. The voice of this vulgar language was recorded by the broadcaster and he later shared it on social media. Stokes was dismissed for only two runs during his innings.

Stokes later apologized on social media for his behavior. Stokes wrote on Twitter, ‘The kind of language I used after I got out, everyone heard it on live broadcasts. I apologize for that language. When I was going out towards the pavilion, I was constantly being targeted with indecent language from the audience.
