Ben Stokes opts out of IPL auctions to stay fresh for English home summer

World’s premier all-rounder Ben Stokes has opted out of this year’s Indian Premier League in order to manage his workload and remain mentally fresh for England’s next home season, according to reports in British media.

Stokes had an underwhelming Ashes, having scored only 236 runs and picking only four wickets in England’s 0-4 thrashing at the hands of Australia.

With lot of England stalwarts including former skipper David Gower already starting their annual criticism of the cash-rich T20 league, it is understood that Stokes, who could have again fetched bug bucks, has decided to stay away.
