The Gujarat Lions will be without pace bowler Andrew Tye for the rest of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season after he dislocated his shoulder.
Tye sustained the injury while diving to stop the ball near the boundary during his side’s Super Over loss to the Mumbai Indians on Saturday.
Tye had to be stretchered off the field and will now return back to Australia, where he will come to know how serious his injury is.
“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.”
The 30-year-old, who was playing in the IPL for the first time, was the Lions’ highest wicket-taker with 12 scalps in six games at an average of 11.75.
