Ben Stokes may refuse to participate in foreign leagues
Ben Stokes is one of the most sought-after players on the international market. This professional has everything: the experience of performing at the highest level, the character of a leader, and incredible talent, backed up by diligence. But Ben is quite a mature player, and it is difficult for him to cope with a busy schedule. Against this background, the leader of the England national team made an important statement: Ben Stokes may refuse to participate in foreign leagues.
“For me, playing for the national team is still the pinnacle, the most important thing in cricket. I will do my best to show my maximum in the England national team. If I have to refuse to participate in the IPL or any other leagues, then I will do it,” Ben Stokes stated.
Recall that Stokes missed the IPL 2022 draw to relieve his body before the start of a difficult period at the international level. It is likely that even now, Ben will decide not to participate in the Indian Premier League draw.
