Ben Stokes compared his IPL team CSK’s victory this season to that of Chelsea legend “John Terry,” who famously lifted the Champions League trophy in 2012 while wearing the Chelsea kit.
Despite missing the final against Bayern Munich because of a suspension, Ben Stokes, the captain of the England team, believes that he played the “John Terry role.”
Stoke referred to “John Terry,” a famous Chelsea legend who, despite missing the Champions League final against Bayern Munich due to suspension, famously lifted the trophy in 2012.
While wearing his Chelsea uniform. During press conferences at Lord’s, Stokes talked about how he helped his team win the IPL.
“I played a little bit of a John Terry role in winning the IPL,” he claimed. Stokes joined the CSK franchise for INR 16.25 crore.
But he only played two games because of a toe injury. Stokes last played against the Lucknow Super Giants in April.
In the bar of the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, he was back in the UK and watched on his phone the inspiring victory of his team over the Gujarat Titans.
During their one-time match against Ireland, the English team is staying at the hotel. Because he thinks he only has so many overs left in his carrier.
Stokes has limited his bowling between Tests.
“Before I didn’t need to stress over that, I could just endlessly bowl and turn up lovely new. Since I probably won’t be able to do that now.
The most crucial part of properly managing anything is probably what happens in between games.” Stirs up was cited as saying by ESPNCricinfo.
Stokes said that he has had time to focus on his training camp since his injury and return from the IPL.
I’ve seen that as an opportunity to train rather than playing and then topping myself up as the tournament goes on, which I think I would much rather have done.
“When you get into the competition it’s like play, travel, all that sort of stuff. So, I was actually able to turn a bad situation into a good one because I was able to focus on properly training.
Whether it was technical stuff at the baseball game or fitness stuff at the gym and being able to focus on something else. Stirs up additionally added.
