How Stokes spent his IPL paycheque
If you're Ben Stokes, England's red-hot allrounder, what do you do with the 2.8 million dollars from the Indian Premier League?
You buy a new supercar. And that's it.
"I won't be touching the rest for a long time," Stokes, who did not reveal what car he had bought, told the Daily Mirror. "But I had to treat myself, and I love cars."
However, it's not the money that drives Stokes.
"Looking back on the price tag that everyone talks about, the fact is I would have left with the same amount of money had I done poorly or had I done well -- so the only way I was going to judge myself was by how I did on the pitch not by the price," said Stokes, who put in three man-of-the-match performances for Pune, including a match-winning century.
