Tye has played for Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals, Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) and now-defunct Gujarat Lions. LSG will be Tye’s fifth IPL franchise. The 35-year-old’s best IPL season was in 2018 when he bagged the Purple Cap with 24 wickets from 14 games for KXIP.
Tye had an impressive IPL debut for Gujarat Lions when he took a five-wicket haul conceding 17 runs against now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017. It also included a hat-trick.
