Harry Brook has had an explosive start to his test career, but the England batsman will attempt to swap sixes for home runs when he goes to spring training with Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise St Louis Cardinals this weekend.
Brook has four century and 809 runs in six tests, flourishing under England’s aggressive style of play, dubbed Bazball after coach Brendon McCullum.
That’s how we read it (that Stokes will play the full season). The BCCI assured us before the auction that the English players will be available for the entire IPL, Viswanathan told Cricbuzz. There has been no information received that contradicts the BCCI communication.
Stokes has stated that he will be ready and available to play the first test against Ireland on June 1, but if CSK win the IPL, a compromise would be required.
On June 24 and 25, the Cardinals will play the Chicago Cubs in a two-game series at London Stadium.
