Good news for the Rajasthan Royals team of the Indian Premier League. His batting all-rounder Ben Stokes will soon be seen playing in the IPL 2020. He has left New Zealand for the UAE.
The Rajasthan team has given information in this regard from their official Twitter account. He shared a photo of Stokes sitting on the plane on Twitter. The hurricane will now reach the UAE on Sunday (October 4) morning.
Earlier, Stokes had shared a photo with his father on his Instagram account. Under the caption, “Goodbye, it’s not easy,” he signaled his return to the UAE.
Upon arrival in the UAE, Stokes will be quarantined for six days at the Rajasthan team’s hotel in Dubai. He will also have two corona tests in the meantime and will be allowed to participate in a bio-safe environment with the team if found negative. Therefore, he is likely to be seen playing against Sunrisers Hyderabad on October 11 or against Delhi Capitals on October 14.
Stokes’ father has been diagnosed with cancer. So he withdrew from the Test series against Pakistan and from the IPL. He could not focus on cricket because of his father’s worries. So he made that decision.
