Ben stokes is the destructive English all rounder player. In 2017 he was awarded as the most valuable player of IPL. Ben stokes is the key player for RR the reason behind it is that Ben Stokes is a versatile player. Ben stoke is an all rounder with a specialty because of his ability to bowl in death overs as well as play as finisher in batting line up. In IPL 2018 he was the highest auctioned player but he couldn’t perform as hope. This time Rajasthan Royals is sanguine about Ben Stokes that he helps his team to qualify in play off.
