New Delhi: There is little time left for the IPL to begin and injuries to many players across the globe are becoming a matter of concern for the franchises. This time England Test captain Ben Stokes, bought for 16.25 crores for Chennai Super Kings, is battling a knee injury. He could bowl only two overs in the Wellington Test against New Zealand. Ben Stokes, who is becoming a matter of concern for CSK, has given the news of relief. Ben Stokes has said that he is going to play IPL. After losing by 1 run in the second Test against New Zealand, Ben Stokes said on the question of IPL – Don’t worry, I am going to play IPL.
i’m not a surgeon
He said of the injury, “I won’t lie, it was very frustrating to know that there was something that was keeping me from performing, especially as a fourth seamer.” “I’m not a surgeon, but I knew when I bowled a bit I didn’t feel well. I still have four months to get better at it before the Ashes. I’ll do everything I can. I’ve been in different situations where I’ve been good. I’ve been through situations where it hasn’t been good, but if anything I’ll probably do better.”
