Ben Stokes is to join the Rajasthan Royals (RR) family at the beginning of October. The news has not been formally posted but many authentic sources have posted about his availability.
Stokes, who left for New Zealand in the mid of the Pakistan vs England test series, is currently with his family as his dad was diagnosed with brain cancer.
He already has started training at Christchurch to be RR’s part. According to the reports, the travel arrangements are being made and he will be leaving in a few days.

Andrew McDonald, the head coach of the Pink Army, had said that the management will not be disturbing him and he can have as much time as he requires.
It could have been a direct hit to RR especially in the middle-overs as the rest of the players, other than Steve Smith, Jofra Archer, and Jos Buttler, are less experienced. However, the franchise can try Tom Curran or David Miller in his place until he is not part.
It must have been good news to the franchise as they already started their IPL campaign with a massive against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). They will now face KL Rahul’s Kings XI Punjab on 27th September at Sharjah.
