Moeen Ali Reveals Details Regarding Livingstone’s Recovery

T20 World Cup 2022 is all set to begin on October 16, with first fixture scheduled between Sri Lanka and Namibia. Last year’s semi-finalist England have their first match on October 22 against Afghanistan. Afghanistan is a much-improved team now and the match would be no one-sided affair. For England, there’s bad news. Liam Livingstone still hasn’t fully recovered from the injury he suffered during The Hundred that ruled him out of the tournament.

Livingstone is an all-rounder and has been a key component of England’s squad in recent couple of years. Known for his big-hitting ability and the capacity to intimidate bowlers, Livingstone is a crucial asset for England. Moeen Ali, captaining England squad currently in the absence of regular captain Jos Buttler, revealed details regarding Livingstone’s recovery. Ali disclosed that Livingstone has been in regular touch with Jos Buttler.

Also, the England management is taking all the necessary precautions in order that Livingstone can feature in T20 World Cup’s warm-up matches. Ali said that rolling the ankle is a pretty sensitive injury, so the extended recovery period is understandable. England are levelled at 2-2 in the ongoing T20I series against Pakistan. 

Moeen Ali Discloses Details On Livingstone’s Healing

“I know he’s speaking to Jos and I actually messaged him a couple of days ago to see how he was going,” Moeen said on Tuesday. “He said it’s getting there and he’s on the mend. Hopefully, in Australia, he’ll probably play the last warm-up game or something like that.

When you do your ankle, it’s not easy. I’ve done mine at the IPL and once you’ve rolled it once, apparently it keeps rolling… you keep rolling it throughout your career so you’ve got to be really careful. I’ve done mine twice and I think he’s done his three times now.

We’re hoping that he’s ready. He might be a little bit undercooked but he’ll pick it up quickly and it’s actually not been a bad thing for him to have a bit of a break from cricket.”
