Canterbury Cricket can confirm that Ben Stokes will return to the UK today for family reasons. He leaves with our gratitude for his time with us and for what he added to the squad during his time in Canterbury.
“Ben has been great around the club, the team and the staff. We can’t fault his attitude or his all-round contribution in his time with us and we are sorry that he couldn’t stay with us for longer but Ben knows that he will always find a welcome here should the opportunity arise for him to return” said Canterbury CEO, Jez Curwin.
Ben was keen to thank the club for the opportunity afforded to him. “I have thoroughly enjoyed training and playing with Canterbury. Everyone here has gone out of their way to make me feel at home. It’s a wonderful club and I couldn’t have asked for any more from my time here” said Stokes.
