England Star Cricketer Liam Livingstone admits he was Not Fully Fit During T20 World Cup 2022
Meanwhile, England international Liam Livingstone said he was not totally fit during the recently-concluded T20 World Cup 2022 that was staged in Australia.
He went on to disclose the details about his injury in the lead-up to the showpiece event. For the unversed, the productive all-rounder was out of England’s set-up since August.
In fact, he was actually nursing an injury which he sustained during England’s premier franchise league competition, The Hundred in August. Liam came back into the side too late and then managed to secure a spot in the playing XI.
“I fell down a kerb trying to dodge a puddle, one morning when we were going out for breakfast in London. The whole winter flashed in front of my eyes. It was a 12 week injury, with seven weeks and four days till the first World Cup game,” England star Liam Livingstone told Sports Mail in an interview.
“It’s still not 100% and it wasn’t through the World Cup. I didn’t actually start sprinting till a week before the first World Cup game but letting my mum and dad fly home with a World Cup medal made all the struggles worth it,” Livingstone added.
The all-rounder contributed to the team by scoring 55 runs to his name. On the other hand, he took three wickets to his name in the showpiece event.
