The Economic Times - - Sports: The Great Games -

Eng­land all-rounder Ben Stokes, who be­came the high­est paid over­seas player in the In­dian Premier League auc­tion, is ex­cited about shar­ing the dress­ing room with Steven Smith and MS Dhoni in his maiden stint at the cash-rich event. Stokes was bagged for Rs 14.5 crore by Ris­ing Pune Su­per­giants. “I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to play­ing with MS Dhoni and Steven Smith. It will be great to share the dress­ing room with both these play­ers. Dhoni is one of the big­gest play­ers in the world and Smith too is one of the best. While I’ve had some heated mo­ments against Smith, look­ing for­ward to play along­side him. He is an amaz­ing player,” Stokes said in a Face­book chat on his of­fi­cial page.
