Gujarat Lions all-rounder Andrew Tye has been ruled out for the remainder of the IPL 2017 with a dislocated shoulder. Andrew Tye sustained the injury on Saturday night, i.e., 29th April 2017 while fielding in the Gujarat Lions home match against Mumbai Indians.
Andrew Tye dislocated his shoulder when he dived to stop a boundary at deep square leg.
“The shoulder popped out of the socket and remained out for a while. They put it back in at the hospital,” Tye said. “The extent of the damage is still unknown. I will be flying home in the next couple of days to figure that out. And as for the recovery time, I am not too sure at the moment, but hopefully it’s not too long.”
Andrew Tye made a dream IPL debut this year, taking a hattrick and a five-wicket haul in his debut game against Rising Pune Supergiant. Previously he was part of Chennai Super Kings in 2015 and Gujarat Lions in 2016 but never got a chance to play any match.
Prior to his injury, Andrew Tye has played 6 IPL matches this year and took 12 wickets at an average of 11.75 and an economy rate of 6.71 and was third on the list of wicket-takers in this year’s IPL.
Andrew Tye expressed his gratitude to the team for giving him the opportunity to showcase his skills
“Unfortunately this is the end of the tournament for me. As heartbreaking as it is, I have enjoyed my time here. The people at Gujarat Lions have looked after me well. The fans have been unbelievable,” he said.
