Here’s the penalty amount Ben Stokes has to pay for playing in IPL 2017

England all-rounder Ben Stokes was recently bought in the IPL 2017 auctions by the Rising Pune Supergiants for a whopping amount of Rs. 14.5 crores.

Stokes will now be playing alongside Indian star wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni in the same team. But, now Stokes has to pay a huge sum of money as a penalty to England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for participating in the 10th edition of the IPL.

ECB is set to dock £3,500 (around 2,97,000 INR) per day from the central contract of each England player who participates in the upcoming IPL season.

According to The Telegraph, star all-rounder Ben Stokes may have to give more than £100,000 (around INR 8,488,100) for playing in IPL season 10.
