Ben Stokes is an amazing all-rounder for the England cricket team. He is a very experienced player. He can turn the match single-handily on his day. Ben Stokes would be an amazing inclusion for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. The RR has missed his duties undoubtedly in this year’s IPL. They have managed to win 2 out of 4 matches they played in this year’s IPL. His countrymen, Jos Buttler, is playing for RR but haven’t managed to score big yet for the Rajasthan Royals. It would be great to see what changes Stokes can bring from his arrival in the playing XI. Also, it will be to see if Stokes can bring the RR to the winning ways again.
