England All-rounder Ben Stokes could miss the T20 World Cup in the UAE after having opted against playing in the second leg of the IPL.
He took an indefinite break from cricket prior to the ongoing Test series against India to take care of his mental health.
It is yet to be known whether the all-rounder will be keen to represent England at the showpiece event in the next couple of months. Sources close to the player claim that ‘he is not even thinking about cricket at the moment.
The ICC has put forth a deadline for submitting the squads which are Friday, September 10. So, the parties involved will have to come up with a solution soon.
Teams are required to submit a 15-man squad of 3 reserve players. With the teams allowed to make changes to the squad until October 10.
Which is a week before the tournament commences with the qualification stage. England could very well include Stokes among the ranks and leave him out. If he chooses not to play and continue his break.
The ECB is unlikely to put any imposition on the player, having announced their intention to give him all the time he needs. Stokes announced his decision to take an indefinite break on July 30.
Rajasthan Royals named the Caribbean duo of Evin Lewis and Oshane Thomas as the replacements for Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes for the remainder of the IPL.
England is drawn alongside Australia, West Indies, and South Africa for the Super 12 stage. They will be joined by 2 more members following the culmination of the qualification stage.
