Ben Stokes is anticipated to be available for the whole 2017 Indian Premier League season by the Chennai Super Kings (IPL). According to club CEO Kasi Viswanathan, as of Friday (March 3), the day the team’s preseason camp is due to begin, there has been no information to contradict the prior assurances on the full availability of the English players.
Although rumours that the Durham all-knee rounder’s condition stopped him from bowling for more than two overs in the Wellington Test against New Zealand, the club has released a statement.
The Yellow Army’s success in the playoffs may be due to a scheduling problem. Finding common ground with the England Cricket Board (ECB) may thus be crucial.
According to Brendon McCullum, Ben Stokes’ fitness won’t be affected by the IPL in 2023.
Brendon McCullum, the England coach, earlier confirmed his confidence in CSK head coach Stephen Fleming to effectively manage Ben Stokes’ workload and avoid any negative effects on his aspirations to win the Ashes.
The 31-year-old had already pledged to playing Test cricket and stated he would seriously consider quitting the IPL early in order to make England’s one-off red-ball match against Ireland, which begins on June 1. The IPL’s dates are quite close to those of the Ireland Test, which takes place from March 31 to May 28.
“That is our understanding,” Kasi Viswanathan said in response to the presence of English players on Cricbuzz. The English players will be available for the whole IPL, the BCCI assured us before to the auction. We haven’t received any information that contradicts the BCCI assertion.
They are top-notch. They have a good team under Flem’s direction. Ben Stokes takes everything into account in its larger perspective.Also, I believe that the skipper is waiting to write the screenplay for The Ashes, so he’ll be cordial.
The four-time champions paid INR 16.25 crores for Ben Stokes, pushing him to the top of the auction’s price list. He won’t have taken part in the IPL in 2021. On Friday at the Chepauk Stadium, the majority of CSK’s players, including captain MS Dhoni, will be present to begin their training camp.
