A minor injury has put England’s Liam Livingstone’s appearance in the first world cup match. The injury was inflicted during the first warm-up match England played against India. Livingstone while fielding at midwicket dropped a catch of Ishan Kishan, in the process of doing so he injured himself and Sam Billings had to replace him on the field.
According to the reports of ESPNcricinfo, the news from England’s camp is that the player will be assessed in the next 24 hours for his injury. This means that he is very unlikely to feature in the next practice match, in which England will play New Zealand. English player Moeen Ali, as quoted by ESPNcricinfo said, “I think he’s alright, it was a bit of a scare at that time but he said it was fine, so hopefully he is all good.”
Coming to the match, it was a feast with the bat in hand for both teams. England posted a total of 189 in their 20 overs and the Indian batters chased it down with an over to spare. KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan, who was sent to open the batting, turned out to be the game-changers for their team they scored 51 and 70 respectively. While Moeen Ali and batsman Jonny Bairstow put up a great show for their team with the bat. They scored some quick runs towards the end to add a more than a respectable total on the board. Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers for India as he picked 3 wickets in his 4 overs.
