England will begin their T20 World Cup campaign against Afghanistan on Saturday and Liam Livingstone is raring to make his mark in the showpiece event.
The England ace has been nursing an ankle injury in recent months but he is now fit and ready for the World Cup.
Livingstone has revealed to the ECB that he is excited about playing in Australia and he feels rejuvenated after his recent lay-off.
The England ace will be key to his country's hopes of lifting the trophy next month. The explosive batter has the ability to win matches on his own and England must ensure that they wrap him up in cotton wool for the important games.
Meanwhile, Livingstone has substantial experience of playing in Australia having represented Perth Scorchers.
England could use his experience and nonchalant batting approach in the World Cup.
The England limited overs side is going through a transition phase with a new captain and coach at the helm. However, they have an exciting squad capable of beating any team on their day.
"I feel in a great place after my ankle injury. I have worked tirelessly with England physio Craig de Weymarn to get myself in a position to be fit, and after some intense rehab, I’m ready to play.
"For the past couple of months, I have been icing my ankle daily to control the swelling and improve my movement and flexibility. Having come through the warm-up in Brisbane against Pakistan last Monday, I am ready for the intensity of a world tournament."
