Liam Livingstone is eyeing to make a comeback in the World Cup. The English all-rounder cannot wait to take the field saying “he is wanting to play cricket for every minute of the day”.

The Injury

The 29-year-old has not played since August 23 due to an ankle ligament injury sustained from a seemingly harmless slip on a curb, and he is expected to miss England’s last two T20s against Australia this week in Canberra on Wednesday and Friday.

Statement:

Livingstone told PA Media:

“In my head, I’m aiming for the warm-up game against Pakistan. [My ankle] is improving really quickly. It’s got much better quicker than I thought it was going to.

“We’re at the exciting part of the rehab, we’re getting close and can see light at the end of the tunnel. I’m excited to be back out there. I feel like I’m that kid again in the back garden wanting to play cricket every minute of the day.”

Livingstone is likely to be fit before the T20 World Cup. He is hoping to take the field in a warm-up game against Pakistan. 

Liam Livingstone is very crucial for England’s chances in the World Cup. He is a pinch hitter and has played the BBL in Australia. The man from Lancashire is a multi-dimensional bowler who can bowl off-spin as well as leg-spin. He is a gun fielder. The Englishman adds balance to the English side and provides the finishing kick with the bat. 

England will be hoping that Livingstone gets fit as early as possible and help England in getting the title they are badly waiting for.
