Chennai Super King
Ben Stokes, the England Test Captain and a prominent all-rounder, was acquired by the Chennai Super Kings for an enormous sum of 16.25 crore at the IPL Auction. A native of New Zealand, Stokes is widely regarded as one of the top all-rounders in contemporary cricket. He has played a crucial role in several of England's recent triumphs, including the T20 World Cup 2022, the World Cup 2019, and a thrilling Ashes century at Headingley. Stokes burst onto the IPL scene in 2017 when he was signed by Rising Pune Supergiant for a record sum of INR 14.5 crore. He made an immediate impact by scoring an unbeaten 103 in his debut season and taking 3/18 in 12 matches. Stokes is a dynamic player who can attack the bowlers from the outset and test the batters with his disciplined bowling. Although he did not perform up to his usual high standards in the IPL 2018 and 2019 seasons, he made a comeback in IPL 2020 by scoring 285 runs in eight matches, including a blistering century while opening against the Mumbai Indians. Now a part of the CSK squad, Stokes will be eager to shine in the upcoming 2023 season.
