Stokes, from England who hit a whirlwind 63-ball 103 to help Pune recover from 10/3 and go on to win by six wickets against Gujarat Lions on Monday, was seen struggling to run with cramps at the end of his essay.

"There are no issues with him. He has rested well and is raring to go against Kolkata tomorrow," the Pune official told IANS over phone after Steve Smith's side touched base in Kolkata on Tuesday evening.
