Ahead of IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) got an unexpected shock. As the IPL 2023 (IPL 2023) season matches will begin from March 31, the Chennai team will play their first match against the defending champions Gujarat Titans on the first day. But.. along with this match, Chennai all-rounder Ben Stokes (Ben Stokes) is bowling in the first half matches of the season. Chennai team batting coach Michael Hussey confirmed this.

In fact, Chennai Super Kings, who competed with all the franchises for Ben Stokes in the IPL 2023 season auction, bagged Rs 16.25 crore. Benstokes, who is the Test captain of the England team, hopes that he will be useful as an all-rounder for the team with batting and bowling, and the Chennai franchise has paid Rs. Crores poured in. But.. Hussey made it clear that Ben Stokes is going to play the entire first half of IPL 2023 as a batter.

“As far as I know, Benstokes will only play the first half of the season as a batsman. It will take some time for him to bowl because of the elbow injury. Two days ago he bowled only briefly in the nets. I had to take injections for that too. So… it might take a few weeks for him to bowl,” revealed Hussey.

Ben Stokes has scored 920 runs in 43 matches in IPL so far. Benstokes, who also took 28 wickets, can bowl in the middle and death overs. Benstokes has the experience of bowling in death overs while playing for England T20 and ODI team. So the Chennai franchise bought him with a bang. But.. disappointment does not seem to go away.
