KL Rahul Wishes Ben Stokes To Be In His Team In IPL 2020
Everything isn’t going right fro KL Rahul at the moment. He isn’t a regular member of the playing XI in shorter formats or neither the part of the Indian National Cricket Team in longer version of the game. However, KL Rahul is confident of making a comeback into the team and already started his domestic show on a grand note by scoring a stunning century. Meanwhile, in an interview with Crictracker, he revealed quite a few things, in which, Ben Stokes’ topic took the headlines.
Stokes played a starring role in England’s first 50-over World Cup triumph. He showed his class in his dynamic man-of-the-match display in their dramatic final win against New Zealand in July. The 28-year-old then repeated his heroics with a superb match-winning 135 not out in the third Ashes Test against Australia.
Stokes was honored on Wednesday for those achievements by scooping the Reg Hayter Cup ahead of fellow nominees Simon Harmer, Ryan Higgins, and Dom Sibley. All the legendary players in the PCA panel have unanimously elected Ben Stokes for his dominating show throughout the summer.KL Rahul (Credits: Twitter)
What Ben Stokes did was unbelievable – KL Rahul
Speaking of the brilliant knock against Australia, KL Rahul showered words of praise on the youngster. He quoted that Ben Stokes has played one of the best knocks of this era and wished to have his services for his own franchise in the upcoming Indian Premier League 2020.
”It’s funny because we were playing a Test match too in Antigua. But we were following the scores on the manager’s phone as we’re not really allowed to use phones during the game, just the manager kept checking for scores and we kept following ball by ball. What he did was unbelievable. It will always remain the best Test match that was ever played. To play an innings like that is incredible. he’s a phenomenal player and phenomenal athlete – you can watch that game over and over again.”Ben Stokes. (Credits: Twitter)
”He can bowl, he’s a phenomenal fielder, yeah, he’s played out there before and he’s had a great impact on the teams he’s played for. I hope he can play for my team, it’d be great to have him on my team.”
Well, most probably, it isn’t going to happen in 2020, as KL Rahul is Kings XI Punjab’s best player while Rajasthan Royals will not dare to leave such an incredible player. However, the words show how much respect he has for Ben Stokes.
