IPL 2020: Rajasthan Royals may get a big loss, Ben Stokes may not play.
Stokes, who plays for Rajasthan Royals, is currently in New Zealand with his family. Stokes’ father is battling brain cancer and is currently with his father.
The 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is to begin in the United Arab Emirates from 19 September. England all-rounder Ben Stokes is finding it a bit difficult to play in this season of IPL. England has announced the squad for the limited-overs series against Australia and Ben Stokes is not part of this team. Stokes, who plays for Rajasthan Royals, is currently in New Zealand with his family. Stokes’ father is battling brain cancer and is currently with his father.

Stokes withdrew his name after just one match in the Test series against Pakistan after a brilliant performance with bat and ball in the Test series against the West Indies. Stokes had told The Weeknd Herald, “I haven’t been able to sleep for a week since I came to know about the father’s situation.” It is right for my mental condition to leave my team. Stokes will also not be included in the T20 and ODI International series between England and Australia from September 4.
Rajasthan Royals have not given any official statement regarding Stokes
The 29-year-old Stokes is unable to play seven of the national team, so it seems too difficult for him to go to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the IPL. Players from England and Australia who are part of the limited-overs series and will also play in the IPL will leave for the UAE directly from here. Cricketers from England and Australia may quarantine a week after arriving in the UAE, in which case they may miss the initial IPL match. The situation will be even more complex for Stokes. Given his father’s illness, Stokes would like to stay with his family as much as possible. There is currently no official statement from Rajasthan Royals regarding Stokes. The Rajasthan Royals team may announce the replacement of the Stakes soon after the situation clears.
