Rajasthan Royals Wish Ben Stokes A Speedy Recovery As He Leaves India Ahead Of Surgery





England all-rounder Ben Stokes on Friday left India to undergo surgery on his left index finger. Stokes was ruled of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 after picking up an injury in Rajasthan Royals’ opening game against Punjab Kings. The World Cup-winning all-rounder had earlier expressed his desire to stay with the Royals “to provide valued support and inputs off the field.” However, Stokes was forced to return to the United Kingdom for an operation as directed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). On Saturday, Rajasthan Royals confirmed Stokes’ departure from the Mumbai bio-bubble and wished him a “speedy recovery.”

“Bye, Ben. The all-rounder flew back home last night after a scan revealed that he’ll have to undergo surgery on his finger. Speedy recovery, champ,” the Royals tweeted with a picture of Stokes.

“We will miss you, Champ… But wish you a speedy recovery and yah Rajasthan Royals, please retain him in the next IPL as well,” wrote another supporter of the team.

Stokes is also expected to miss England’s Test series against New Zealand, which is slated to be held in June, as he will need “up to 12 weeks” to recover.
