Ravichandran Ashwin predicts which team will pick Ben Stokes in the IPL 2023 Auction
The mini auction for the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be held in Kochi in December this year. In this auction, bidding will be done on all the players. One of them is England's experienced all-rounder Ben Stokes. India's veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has made a big prediction regarding the IPL future for Ben Stokes.
Let us tell you, in the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2022 final match, Ben Stokes first bowled well against Pakistan and then played an important role in his team's victory by playing a brilliant unbeaten half-century. He won the hearts of all the spectators in the final match played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Veteran India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin believes that Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) would be very keen to include Ben Stokes in their squad. Let us tell you, the Lucknow franchise have dropped Jason Holder from their team before the upcoming season and that is why they can include Stokes in the team in the upcoming season.
Ashwin said in his YouTube channel, "Lucknow Super Giants would definitely like to include Ben Stokes in their team. Therir first choice would be the England all-rounder and only then would they add the rest of the players to their squad."
Ravichandran Ashwin believes that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise would be very keen to include Sam Curran in their team. Sam had performed amazingly in the T20 World Cup 2022 and played a key role in his team's victory.
