After Ben Stokes, another England player pulls out of IPL 2024

Former England captain Joe Root, who made his IPL debut for Rajasthan Royals in 2023, has pulled out of IPL 2024.

“During our retention conversations, Joe told us that he would not be coming to India for the Indian Premier League,” Kumar Sangakkara, Royals Director of Cricket, said. “Joe has made a positive impact on the players in a short period of time. His experience will be missed by the Royal Family. We wish him success.”

Root was bought by the Royals for a base price of INR 1 crore. He played three matches for them but only had a chance to win one, scoring 10 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

“Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, Yashasvi Jaiswal have learned a lot from him,” the franchise said in the statement. “His close friendship with Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal was one of the highlights of his short stint with the Royals.”

Root becomes the second England player after Ben Stokes to opt out of the next season of the IPL.
