Widely regarded as explosive batter in white-ball cricket, Liam Livingstone will finally make his Test debut on Thursday (December 1) against Pakistan cricket team at Rawalpindi.

Livingstone made his England cricket team T20I debut in June 2017 against South Africa. He got an opportunity in the 50-over in 2021 against India. So far, he has garnered 473 runs in 41 white-ball appearances, with one fifty and a century each. Recently, Livingstone was part of English setup in T20 World Cup 2022.

Although Liam Livingstone didn’t feature in County Championship 2022, he has 3069 runs at an average of 38.36 in 62 first-class matches. It also includes 15 fifties and seven centuries.

The 29-year-old will be one of two new faces in the Playing XI against Pakistan. The left-handed batter Ben Duckett also marks his presence in the final lost of players.

England name Playing XI; Liam Livingstone, Harry Brook Players to Watch Out

Liam Livingstone is likely to bat at the number six/seven slot due to the players already marking their presence in earlier positions. The youngster Harry Brook will bat at No. 5, and would look to cement his place in the red-ball team.

The head coach Brendon McCullum thinks Liam Livingstone is a total package, with handy spin option and terrific ball-striking abilities. Moreover, the middle-order batter is a good addition to the side, which has adopted Bazball approach.

“He bowls off-spin, leg-spin, fields well and smacks the ball out of the park – it’s hard not to get around a player who plays like that,” said Brendon McCullum.

Livingstone beat Will Jacks to make an entry to the Playing XI, with the skill to spin the ball both ways. The England skipper Ben Stokes further revealed that he would use Livingstone in the fixture due to his capability with the ball.

However, 14 English players are said to be down with a viral fever ahead of the first Test starting Thursday. Only Brook, Zak Crawley, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope and Joe Root are fit to play at this moment. It is likely that the fixture might be delayed by a day or two.
