According to British newspaper “Independent”, Stokes has in all likelihood fractured his left-and while taking a diving catch to dismiss West Indies dasher Chris Gayle.

“Having dropped a chance earlier in the match, Stokes ran in from long on and dived forward to complete the dismissal of the West Indian batsman. He immediately felt discomfort in his left hand, grimacing as he got up to celebrate with his teammates,” the newspaper reported.
It was due to the injury that Stokes didn’t bowl more than one over with Punjab Kings scoring a massive 222.
“The Independent understands that Stokes will remain out in India for a week. Dialogue has already begun between the ECB and Royals around managing the injury,” the newspaper said.
“He will have an X-Ray in India (Mumbai) on Thursday to determine how much damage has been done before the ECB takes over the planning of the recovery,” it further said.
