Liam Livingstone's Indian odyssey is over after Rajasthan Royals crashed out of the IPL, following a five-wicket defeat against Delhi Capitals last Saturday.

Playing in his third game in a row, former Barrow Cricket Club all-rounder Livingstone made 14 batting from opener for the Royals, whose sub-par 115-9 was never going to be enough.

Livingstone, 25, was the second wicket to fall for the visitors, as he was bowled by Ishant Sharma, and his side were floundering by the end of the power play on 30-4.

It would be a stretch to say their innings recovered from that point, but there was the positive of a terrific display from 17-year-old Riyan Parag, who became the youngest player to make a half-century in the IPL, with 50 off 49 balls.

The Capitals' bowlers remained on top, with Amit Mishra returning a superb 3-17 and Sharma chipping in with 3-38.

Although he didn't bowl, Livingstone did have a hand in a couple of Delhi dismissals, as he pouched Shreyas Iyer (15) and Sherfane Rutherford (11) at long on, both off Shreyas Gopal.

Despite 3-26 from Ish Sodhi, the Capitals, easily chased down their target with 23 deliveries to spare, thanks to an unbeaten 53 off 38 balls from wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant.

Livingstone comes back from the IPL having made 70 runs from his four matches (at an average of 23.30), with a top score of 44 coming against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
