The England Test captain Ben Stokes, who has already played 43 games in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has set his base price at INR 2 crore for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 mini-auction, which is all set to be held on December 23 in Kochi.

Speaking on his official YouTube channel ahead of the mini-auction, former India National Cricket Team batter Chopra said:

“I don’t think Chennai Super Kings or Punjab Kings might want Ben Stokes. Mumbai Indians could think about Stokes if they can snap him up at around 8-10 crore.”

The 45-year-old further predicted that Stokes might be the third-most expensive player at this year’s auction. He stated:

“Stokes could be the third-most expensive player at the auction. Auction dynamics can often change a lot of things and inflate prices. Sunrisers Hyderabad need a top-order batter and a captain so they will be prime contenders to go for Stokes.

“Even Delhi might feel the need to go for him if they don’t get a quality all-rounder from elsewhere.”
