Ben Stokes' ODI Debut

In the 2019 World Cup Final, Ben Stokes played one of the all time great batting performances in the final against New Zealand to ultimately win England the game and the tournament.

In fact his entire tournament had been utterly superb scoring 465 runs, taking 7 wickets and 3 catches. A dominant display on all parts.

His ODI debut had come some 8 years before in an experimental side against Ireland in Dublin.

Stokes' shock announcement to retire from the format was seen as unsurprising in many circles because of the intense international schedule, not to mention the stressed and strains of Test captaincy.

Our question today is how many players from Stokes' ODI debut can you name?
