Lucknow Super Giants announced the signing of Australia fast bowler Andrew Tye as a replacement for injured England pacer Mark Wood on Wednesday. LSG have secured the services of Tye at his base price of Rs 1 crore ahead of the Indian Premier League 2022 season.
Mark Wood suffered an elbow injury during England’s first Test against West Indies earlier this month. The player had triggered a bidding war at the IPL 2022 mega auction. LSG won a bidding battle with Mumbai Indians to sign the pacer for Rs 7 crore, more than 3 times his base price of Rs 2 crore.
Tye was the Purple Cap winner for the most wickets in the 2018 season. He picked up 24 wickets for Punjab Kings in 14 matches.
