Vivo IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals (RR) Andrew Tye withdraws from Vivo IPL 2021
Vivo IPL 2021: Another major blow for Australian rookie Rajasthan Royals (RR) champion Andrew Tye has withdrawn from the ongoing fourteenth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Tye cited “personal reasons” for the act and returned home on Sunday.
He becomes the fourth overseas rookie of the Rajasthan Royals (RR) to withdraw from IPL 2021. Previously, Ben Stokes (finger injury), Jofra Archer (hand surgery) and Liam Livingstone (bubble fatigue) had withdrawn.
“AJ Tye returned to Australia earlier today for personal reasons. We will continue to offer any support he may need, ”Royals tweeted that day.
RR cricket operations manager Kumar Sangakkara on Saturday after the win over KKR announced that Tye would be leaving the bubble as he had an early morning flight at 4 a.m. on Sunday.
A few days ago, England cricketer Liam Livingstone retired due to excessive bubble fatigue. He had been in the bubble with the England national team for about a year.
The England Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Friday that Jofra Archer has started high intensity training, but he will be back on the cricket ground after a fortnight. It will be almost impossible for him to arrive in India and continue to Rajasthan Royals (RR).
Versatile player Ben Stokes in RR’s opener suffered an injury taking a dive. Later, repeated scans revealed that Stokes had suffered a broken finger and would be returning home for further surgery.
