New Delhi: England all-rounder Ben Stokes has asserted that the exposure available in the Big Bash League (BBL) and the Indian Premier League (IPL) is missing in his native country.
Stokes, who was bought by Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) for a whopping Rs 14.50 crore during last month's auction, will be making his IPL league debut this year.
The 25-year-old, who has played for Melbourne Renegades in the BBL in Australia, said playing against and alongside some of the top players in the world has helped him to improve his game.
Stokes was welcomed by RPS team owner Sanjeev Goenka, who presented the England all-rounder with the official team jersey alongside skipper Steve Smith and Ajinkya Rahane.
RPS will open their campaign against Mumbai Indians at home on April 6.
