Why Stokes had to retire from ODIs at the age of 31? This shocking reason came to the fore


Ben Stokes: England’s swashbuckling batsman Ben Stokes retired from ODI cricket at the young age of 31, about which a shocking revelation has now come to light. Former England captain Nasser Hussain believes that the main reason for Test captain Ben Stokes’ retirement from ODI cricket is physical exhaustion, as too much all-format cricket is being played. Stokes, 31, announced this Monday that he would retire from ODI cricket after Tuesday’s match against South Africa at his home ground in Durham’s Chester-le-Street.

Why Stokes had to retire from ODIs at the age of 31?

Ben Stokes made his ODI debut in 2011 against Ireland and scored 2924 runs in 105 ODIs at an average of 38.98, including three centuries and 21 half-centuries. Has taken 74 wickets at an average of 42.39. He captained the team during the 3-0 series win against Pakistan last summer.

This shocking reason came to the fore

The all-rounder could only score five runs and could not even take a wicket in England’s 62-run defeat in their farewell ODI against South Africa on Tuesday. Hussain said that Stokes’ decision to retire from 50 overs is mainly physical exhaustion. Workload management has become a major issue for cricketers across the world and even though Stokes has led the Test team to four consecutive wins, he looks troubled.

Hussain said that given the attractive nature of T20 cricket and the attractiveness of Test cricket, players want to play only two formats, adding that Stokes’ decision to skip ODIs should be good for cricket administrators.
