IPL 2021: Tabraiz Shamsi to join Rajasthan Royals, George Garton replaces Kane Richardson at RCB


Andrew Tye pulls out for the remainder of the season

Tabraiz Shamsi, the world’s No.1-ranked T20I bowler, will join Rajasthan Royals for the remainder of IPL 2021. Shamsi is the second replacement player that Royals have signed, after Glenn Phillips.
The Royals will be without Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler for the second half of this IPL, while Ben Stokes’ availability still remains uncertain after the allrounder took a break from cricket for mental-health reasons. They will also be without Andrew Tye, who has pulled out of the remainder of the season.
With Shamsi and Phillips, the other overseas players remaining in the Royals’ roster are David Miller, Chris Morris, Liam Livingstone and Mustafizur Rahman. They had young South African quick Gerald Coetzee in the squad for the first half as a replacement for Livingstone, but with Livingstone expected to be available for the second half, Coetzee will no longer be with Royals. That leaves Royals with six overseas players, potentially seven if Stokes returns, and leaves them with one more overseas spot still available to be filled.
