Sangakkara explains the reasons behind releasing Stokes and Archer

Rajasthan Royals has released two of its biggest stars who also are the most wanted cricketers in the world at the moment. They are Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. The Director of Cricket department at Rajasthan Royals, former Sri Lankan international Kumar Sangakkara in his explanation behind releasing these two cricketers, has commented, "Mainly, we had considered the matter of players' availability, their injury and recovery period. And considering these issues we were forced to take this unfortunate decision as we all are aware that Stokes and Archer, both are absolute match-winners. I believe the players will also understand the situation even though they become frustrated with the decision."
