The England all-rounder suffered a hand injury during the match against the Punjab Kings. According to the independent newspaper Khabar, the injury to his hand is serious. He was hurt while catching a catch from Chris Gayle.
Stokes was fielding at long on and he tried to leap forward and catch a catch. However, he could not catch the catch and was seen in trouble at the same time. He then landed as an opener for the Royals. However, he did not do any good in this and remained at the crease for only three balls. He could not even open an account.
It is reported that Stokes will remain in India for a week. On Thursday, he will have an X-ray of his hand to give an idea of how serious the injury is. The England and Wales Cricket Board is in talks with Rajasthan Royals for the management of the injury.
