Livingstone, Injured and out of the Cup?

England will start their World Cup campaign officially on Saturday against the former champions, the West Indies. 

However, England might have to go ahead without the in-form Liam Livingstone. The English-man was injured last night against India. Ishaan Kishan’s Leg side shot, was almost caught by Livingstone, as he injured his finger and dropped the catch. Although the warm up victory wasn’t the goal, India still picked up the momentum heading into their clash with Pakistan. 

Liam left the field immediately after the botched fielding effort with the team physio as he injured the little finger of his left hand. 

Moen Ali, who got England to a score of 188 to set up a target of 189, commented on the whole situation post match. “I think he’s alright,” he said. “I think it’s just bruising on the back of the hand but I think he’ll be fine. Obviously it was a bit of a scare at the time but he said it was fine, so hopefully he’s all good. He’s a brilliant player – he’s been playing really well over the last couple of years. Hopefully he can carry that form into the World Cup and I feel like it’s going to be a big stage for him.”
