Ben Stokes, England’s test skipper will not be playing the IPL 2024 season. As per reports doing the rounds, the 32-year-old has taken this decision due to his fitness concerns. Workload Management is also cited as a reason for Ben Stokes to come up with this decision.

Chennai Super Kings as per the sources were going to release the England international after his injury-riddled season in 2023. MS Dhoni and his side had forked out a huge sum for the England all-rounder who ended up playing just two games for the eventual winners.

England is set to tour India early 2024 for a five-match test series and Ben Stokes is going to be leading the side during the tour. The England all-rounder had claimed that he wants his knee to be fixed in time for the upcoming tour of India.

An official statement from Chennai Super Kings was made soon after Ben Stokes made his decision public. The Statement read “The Chennai Super Kings management is supportive of Ben in his decision to manage the workload with England playing a 5-match Test Series in India before the IPL and then the T20 World Cup in June 2024”

England are defending T20 World Cup winners after having won the event in 2022 in Australia. It was Ben Stokes, who played a key role in the final win with a brilliant win against Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
