IPL gave money to Ben Stokes but focus on Ashes
Please tell that the full attention of Ben Stokes is being considered on the Ashes. Now the question is that he has got money in IPL and his focus is on Ashes. By the way, Ben Stokes is not doing this for the first time that he has got more money and he has not even played the entire match. Rajasthan Royals gave Stokes 12.50 crores every season from 2018 to 2021 but this player played only 31 matches in these four years. Means he did not even play 8 matches per season. It is clear that Dhoni or Chennai management should have thought twice before choosing Stokes.
