Stokes acknowledged that being the Test captain comes with a significant amount of responsibility. Ben Stokes is currently serving as the captain of England’s test squad. All-rounder Stokes, who was 31 years old, has announced his retirement from One-Day International cricket.
New Delhi. Ben Stokes, a talented all-rounder who plays for England, is presently serving as the team’s captain for the Test matches. He is participating in the test series that England is playing against South Africa as a member of the England squad. Only a month ago, he called it quits on the one-day international format. Despite this, he will continue to play for England in Twenty20 matches. After reviewing the match schedule, he will make a decision on his participation in the Indian Premier League (IPL), he has said before.
Ben Stokes, who is now 31 years old, is not often seen playing in this style. It is abundantly evident that he would take part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) only after seeing the match schedule. In addition to this, he said that he places a high priority on playing in test matches and that he intends to play franchise cricket according to this schedule all over the globe. In the event that there is a series of tests, he would love the opportunity to play for England in one of them.
During a press conference that was put on by Prime Video, Stokes said that “as England cricketers, our calendar is hectic and it feels like we have been playing all year.” Either people are going to go to England to play, or we are traveling to other countries to play cricket. It is a question of scheduling, but as I have made it quite clear, test cricket is at the forefront of my thoughts, and all of my choices will be based on test matches. The issue at hand is the scheduling.
He continued by saying, “Now that I am the captain, the duty to do so also falls on my shoulders.” My participation in any foreign league will, without a doubt, be contingent on the schedule that we have. You should know that I have been playing in the IPL for the last four years. Every time I have gone there, I have felt an overwhelming amount of affection from everyone there. It is an incredible tournament to take part in, and you have the chance to collaborate with some of the finest players and some of the top coaches in the world. Being a part of something so amazing as this is a dream come true.
