IPL 2022: Ben Stokes reportedly opts out of upcoming IPL Mega Auction;
IPL 2022: According to reports in the British media, Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises have suffered a major setback. As world’s best all-rounder Ben Stokes has opted out of this year’s IPL 2022 mega-auction. In order to manage his workload and be psychologically fresh for England’s next home season.
Stokes had a poor Ashes performance, scoring only 236 runs. And taking only four wickets in England’s 0-4 thumping by Australia.
”Stokes will sit out this year’s tournament, which will feature 10 teams for the first time. And be preceded by a mega-auction in which there are plenty of spaces to fill,” London’s Evening Standard reported.
