IPL 2023: Before the start of IPL, MS Dhoni’s team CSK has suffered another setback. All-rounder Kyle Jameson has already been ruled out of the IPL. While now a veteran player in the team has made it clear that he will not be a part of the playoff matches.
Ben Stokes will not play in the playoffs
Even before the start of the Indian Premier League 2023, CSK has got another bad news. England’s Ben Stokes, who is considered to be a contender for the team’s star all-rounder and captaincy, has cleared that he will not participate in the playoff matches in the IPL. In such a situation, if CSK goes to the playoffs, then Stokes will not be seen playing there.
Stokes decided for this reason
It is being told that Ben Stokes has taken this decision because of his participation in the Ashes series and the only Test match against Ireland. Because Stokes is the Test captain of England, he will have to participate in this match because of the captaincy. At the same time, after this, he will start preparing for the Ashes, so Stokes has said that he will not participate in the playoff matches of the IPL.
Stokes says that he wants to give priority to the Ashes and the Test against Ireland, so that he can give enough time to the team, so he is taking this decision. Stokes has given this information before the ongoing second Test match against New Zealand. Please tell that Stokes is considered an important player for CSK. But his decision can prove to be important for the team.
