The Indian Premier League auctions manage to make headlines every year. Headlines for the papers, and a whole lot of money for the players, and this year #BenStokes made a lot of hay while the bids shined.
Bought by the #RisingPuneSupergiants for a mind boggling INR 14.5crore, #BenStokes is not only the most expensive player this year, but also the second most expensive player ever after #YuvrajSingh, and the most expensive Overseas player in the #IndianPremierLeague.
As expected, the topic has turned out to be quite the rage on social media, as Twitter users chimed in with their opinion on this spending blitzkrieg from the Pune outfit, followed up solely after dismissing M.S. Dhoni from his duties as captain. Here are some of the wittiest and some legit Ben Stokes’ Twitter Reactions.
