Ben Stokes is among the most sought-after players in T20 cricket, and for perfectly justifiable reasons. In the IPL, he has scored 920 runs at an average of 25.56 and a strike rate of 134.50.

Besides that, he has also picked up 28 wickets at an economy rate of 8.56 runs per over, which might not be spectacular in isolation, but certainly praiseworthy considering bowling is not perhaps his strongest suit.

Having made his IPL debut for Rising Pune Supergiant in IPL 2017, Stokes was bought for Rs 12.50 crores by Rajasthan Royals ahead of the 2018 season.

Since then, he has played many match-winning knocks for the 2008 champions, including an unbeaten 107 in the 2020 edition.

As for his international career, the 31-year-old has scored 585 runs and has picked up 26 wickets for the Three Lions in the shortest format of the game. Besides the IPL, Stokes has also played in the Big Bash League for Melbourne Renegades.
