In what comes as another body blow to Rajasthan Royals, another overseas player in their contingent has bid adieu to their IPL 2021 campaign with Australian pacer Andrew Tye pulling out of the season.
Rajasthan Royals have been grappling with their overseas players getting either ruled out or pulling out of the season.
It all started with England pacer Jofra Archer, who was ruled out of the first half of IPL 2021, due to finger surgery he underwent prior to the start of the season.
It has now been confirmed that Archer will not return to India and will miss the entire season this year.
Then, it was the turn of all-rounder Ben Stokes, who got ruled out of the competition after he suffered an injury while claiming Chris Gayle’s catch in the first match of the season against Punjab Kings.
And, earlier this week another English all-rounder, Liam Livingstone pulled out of the competition citing bubble fatigue issues.
“Liam Livingstone has flown back home late last night, due to bubble fatigue accumulated over the past year. We understand and respect his decision, and will continue supporting him in any way we can,” the franchise said in a statement.
With Andrew Tye the latest to join the list, Rajasthan Royals are now left with just four overseas players in Jos Buttler, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman and David Miller.
