England Test skipper Ben Stokes became the third batter to smash 100 sixes in Test cricket during the third match against New Zealand at Headingley on Friday.

Stokes reached the feat with a six off Tim Southee in his 151st Test innings. Former New Zealand skipper and current England red-ball coach Brendon McCullum tops the list with 107 sixes.

Stokes is the third-leading six-hitter for England in international cricket (207), with only Eoin Morgan (328) and Jos Buttler (267) ahead of him.
