England cricket Liam Livingstone on Tuesday gave up the rest of what was going on IPL 2021 due to fatigue from bio-bubbles, a decision that will be a huge blow to the Rajasthan Royals.
“Liam Livingstone returned home late last night due to bubble fatigue accumulated over the past year. We understand and respect his decision and will continue to support him in any way,” Rajasthan Royals said on Twitter.
Livingstone was introduced by the Riyals at an auction last February in Chennai for its base price of GEL 75. Although he did not play in any of the three games Rajasthan played in IPL 2021, with the Royals losing Ben Stokes in the tournament due to injury, Livingstone had the opportunity to replace his compatriot in Game XI.
Previously, Livingston was part of the Big Bash League with Perth Scorers.
Rajasthan has yet to announce the replacement of Stokes and Livingston.
