Liam Livingstone’s ‘IPL done’ after Punjab Kings knocked out | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: With Punjab Kings already out of IPL 2024 playoffs race, England’s swashbuckling all-rounder Liam Livingstone on Monday said he is ‘done’ for the season and returned back home to get his ‘knee sorted’ before the commencement of upcoming T20 World Cup from next month.
Punjab have already been eliminated and currently sit at the bottom of the table with just 4 wins in 12 matches.
But the franchise still has got a couple of league games left to play and Livingstone’s absence is set to cost them dearly.

Power-hitter Livingstone had a below-par season this time around where he featured in 7 out 12 matches for Punjab and scored a mere 111 runs at an average of just over 22.
With injury issues, the batting all-rounder had missed games against Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings before returning for the game against Royal Challengers Bengaluru.
Livingstone went on to score a duck in his final game against RCB.
PBKS final two matches are against Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad on May 15 and 19 respectively.
The T20 World Cup begins from June 1 in the Americas and defending champions play their first game against Scotland on June 4.
Livingstone’s injury is not of serious nature but the England management, as per ESPNCricinfo, decided to give him more time to get it treated prior to their home T20I series against Pakistan, beginning on May 22.
After that series, the defending champions will travel to the West Indies for their T20 World Cup engagements, starting on June 4 against Scotland in Bridgetown, Barbados.
Meanwhile, other England players in the IPL who are part of their World Cup squad – Moeen Ali (CSK), Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow (PBKS), Jos Buttler (RR), Will Jacks, Reece Topley (RCB) and Phil Salt (KKR) – will be home-bound the coming weekend.
