Andrew James Tye
(Australian Cricketer)

More of a latecomer, Tye is widely regarded as one of the primary bowlers in Perth Scorchers. He made his ODI debut for Australia in 2018 against England and is now highly regarded for his cunning variations especially in the shortest format of the game.


In 2017, Tye took 5-wickets haul on his IPL debut for Gujarat Lions which also included a hat-trick and was ruled out of the mid-tournament after sustaining an injury. In next edition, he became Purple Cap holder after claiming 24 wickets in 14 innings for Kings XI Punjab.
