England National Cricket Team red-ball captain Ben Stokes, who was recently bought for INR 16.25 crore by CSK at IPL 2023 mini-auction, has lashed out at the International Cricket Council (ICC) for cricket’s jam-packed international schedule.

Ben Stokes recently led England to a dominant 3-0 triumph over Pakistan in their own backyard. England played their aggressive ‘Bazball’ brand of cricket and the hosts simply couldn’t compete.

Meanwhile, Ben Stokes has criticised the ICC for not paying enough attention to scheduling. He cited the example of the “nothing” three-match ODI series between Australia and England, which was played a few days after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, and said in a conversation with Ian Botham on BBC :

“The scheduling doesn’t get enough attention that it should. A great example is England’s one-day series against Australia after the T20 World Cup. That was shoving three games in there. It made sense to someone to schedule a series which meant nothing.

“Some people say ‘you are playing for England, that should be enough’. But there is a lot more to factor in. You want international cricket to be the highest standard. But we have seen a lot of different squads being picked and players being rested, and that’s not the way international cricket should go.”

Ben Stokes further said that the growing popularity of league cricket is hampering the quality of Test cricket. He added that he absolutely loves playing Test cricket and it is very important for the game.

“Test cricket has been spoken about in a way I don’t like. It is losing the attention of the fans with all the new formats and franchise competitions. We understand there are so many opportunities for players away from Test cricket. But for me, it is so important for the game. I love playing Test cricket and felt we could do something different.

“Taking the result away from the mindset is a great starting point. Putting focus on making every day entertaining. Not allowing people to know what is going to happen. If people turn up excited about what they are going to watch you’ve already won before a ball has been bowled.”
