CAPE TOWN: England coach Trevor Bayliss believes all-rounder Ben Stokes is capable of playing another innings like his record-breaking 258 against South Africa.

Stokes blasted the fastest 250 in Test history, taking just 198 deliveries in the drawn second Test between the two countries here recently.

After the innings, Stokes ,, said: "I probably won't play like this ever again."

But Bayliss thinks otherwise.

"I'm not sure it was a one-off. It's quite possible he could do it again, he's that type of player," Bayliss was quoted as saying by BBC on Thursday.

"He's in the prime of his career and we all look forward to watching more of that."

The former Kolkata Knight Riders' coach also defended Stokes after the all-rounder seemingly used foul language against South African batsman Temba Bavuma, who made a century.

"He's a guy that plays the game with passion," said Bayliss. "As he gets older, he'll tone it down a little bit and he'll realise that some comments come back to bite you."

England lead their four-match series 1-0, having won the first Test in Durban.
