Rajasthan Royals have been one of the most affected teams due to injuries especially this year and they could now miss out on yet another star player Liam Livingstone who is injured. Rajasthan will already miss the services of Jofra Archer who will not be available anymore this year due to his injury while Jos Buttler misses out due to the birth of his child.
There is no confirmation on Ben Stokes’s arrival as well who has been missing from the ongoing test series against India on an indefinite break from the game. Livingstone’s injury might just be the last thing that Royals would have wanted and they will be hoping that the injury isn’t much series.
Lancashire Cricket Confirms Liam Livingstone’s Injury
Lancashire Cricket on Twitter confirmed the injury of Liam Livingstone on his shoulder while fielding on the boundary and he had immediately gone off the field as well. Richard Gleeson replaced Livingstone in the field and the county side was certainly disappointed in missing out on so many injured players. Livingstone has been in the form of his life in the last few months and he had an excellent Hundred tournament too.
“More Red Rose injury woe as Liam Livingstone appears to have damaged a shoulder diving to stop a boundary. He’s gone off the field and is replaced by Richard Gleeson.” Lancashire Cricket tweeted. Liam Livingstone has proved his potential in the few outings he has played and he will be one of the stars to watch out for if he makes it to the T20 Worldcup squad for England.
