Ben Stokes could miss T20 World Cup

In what could be a huge blow for England in their pursuit of T20 World Cup trophy, all-rounder Ben Stokes might miss the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup in the UAE after the 30-year-old took an indefinite break from international cricket to take care of his mental well-being.

He was set to take part in the Indian Premier League this year, representing Rajasthan Royals, but the talismanic all-rounder pulled out earlier.

Stokes is also not a part of the ongoing five-match Test series against India.

The T20 World Cup is slated to begin on October 17th few days after the conclusion of the IPL and Stokes’ availability in the tournament is still under the clouds.

There is not really any information available yet about the actual odds that are being offered for this tour, but cricket betting offers a variety of different ways of placing a bet – probably more than most other types of sports betting. Of course there is always the option of betting on the winners of each match in the tour, or of the overall winners of the tour itself, but beyond this there are other ways to bet on the tour of New Zealand.
