Stokes has described his fee as a “a life-changing amount of money”

Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen says Monday’s auction for the Indian Premier League Twenty20 competition was “another slap in Test cricket’s face”.

England duo Ben Stokes and Tymal Mills were bought for £1.7m and £1.4m by Rising Pune Supergiants and and Royal Challengers Bangalore respectively.

Pace bowler Mills only plays Twenty20 cricket because of back pains.

“A T20 specialist becomes one of the current England team’s richest players,” said Pietersen.
