Ben Stokes has been going through a turbulent run courtesy police investigations surrounding brawls off the field of play. However, he has been included in the list of English cricketers to go under the hammer on Auctions-day at Bangalore. He has grown in stature over the years and has been instrumental for whichever team he represented.

He was snapped for a whopping 14.5 crores by the Rising Pune Supergiant in the tenth season of the Indian Premier and he didn’t let his team down one bit. His maiden IPL century against the Gujarat Lions has created an indelible impact on the psyche of cricket fans. He has a base price of 200 Lakhs for the eleventh season and it won’t spring a surprise if teams go hammer and tongs for the English all-rounder.
