London: West Indian all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite says Ben Stokes’ stellar performances for Rising Pune Supergiant in the IPL could see him cost even more than Rs 14.5 crore next year.

Stokes missed Pune’s 20-run win over Mumbai for an England training camp in Spain.

 

Almost a year on from Brathwaite launching Stokes for three sixes in a row to steal the World T20 from England in the final over in Kolkata, the West Indian told Sky Sports the talent has always been there. “Players like Stokes are worth their weight in gold and if he continues the way he is going, he will fetch a large amount again. A year is a long time in cricket though. You don’t know who will be the next big thing in the next 12 months.”
