'I am going to the Indian T20 League': Ben Stokes
Talking about Chennai’s squad for the upcoming cash-rich league's season, they made some interesting changes as they secured England star allrounder and Test skipper Ben Stokes’s services for the upcoming season at a whopping price of INR 16.25 crore. However, it was reported recently that he might miss the entire season but after the 2nd test against New Zealand, he made it clear that he will be available.
"I am going to the Indian T20 League. I have had conversations with ‘Flem’ and he’s fully aware of the situation with my body. It’s a week-by-week case at the moment," Stokes said after the 2nd Test in Wellington.
"I am not going to lie, it’s incredibly frustrating knowing something has been holding me back from performing as I’d like to. I have been working hard with the physios and the medics trying to get myself to a place where I can fulfil my role as I have done for the last 10 year," Stokes added.
