T20 World Cup 2022 winner, England star batter Liam Livingstone has revealed that he struggling with an injury even during the tournament. Livingstone recently pulled out of the ongoing Big Bash League due to an extremely demanding calendar. 

Livingstone was not a part of the T20 World Cup squad until the eleventh hour due to an injury that he copped during The Hundred tournament. But the all-rounder returned to the squad and managed to squeeze himself into the playing XI. 

Livingstone reveals his struggles

"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,"

"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 is all set to feature in England's squad against Pakistan in a Test series. The series is scheduled to start on 1 December.
