Liam Livingstone, an England all-rounder, miss much of the cricketing action in 2022 owing to ankle and knee ailments and is expecting to be completely healed for the forthcoming IPL season.
Livingstone told Sky Sports after the release of The Hundred schedules that he is looking forward to The Hundred and the Ashes and hopes to return to the game in the 2018 IPL.
The 29-year-old English batting all-rounder suffered an ankle injury during the 2022 edition of The Hundred but recover in time to be name to England’s T20 World Cup team in Australia. He also include to England’s Test team for the Pakistan trip. He injured his knee in the first Test and was unable to play the remainder of the series.
He has been out of the game since then and is looking to make a comeback in the IPL for the Punjab Kings.
“I am healing from a knee issue after that one [the Pakistan trip] and was carrying an ankle problem during the World Cup,” Livingstone told Sky Sports. I’m simply trying to get them straighten out; it’s a slow process right now. I think I’m on the correct track. I’m hoping to return in the next several months.”
“[Being wounded during The Hundred] was frustrating. I had a rough start to the competition but eventually earned some runs at The Oval. Unfortunately, I suffered a weird accident and sprained my ankle.” It was quite unfortunate to have been wounded at the time, especially during a competition.”
“It’ll be a long few weeks getting back into shape from rehab, and hopefully I’ll be back around IPL time so I can get back into the swing of things.”
Livingstone also stated that it is fortunate that none of the games in the Hundred clash with any of the National team’s games. He stated, “I believe that everyone wants to see the England internationals play because it is what draws crowds and what people want to see. For the young guys in England, being in the same dressing room as (Ben) Stokes and (Joe) Root is huge. The fact that they can play is a significant draw.”
