England’s Livingstone overcomes finger injury before T20 World Cup | Cricket News – Times of India

England all-rounder Liam Livingstone has injured his finger in a warm-up match against India ahead of the World Twenty20, captain Eoin Morgan has said.
Livingstone left the field with the youngest finger of his left hand after being caught at deep midwicket during England’s seven-wicket defeat to India on Monday.
“Liam is good and perfectly fit,” Morgan told reporters. “So far no other problems, touch the wood.”
Livingstone was replaced by Ben Stokes in coach Chris Silverwood’s squad for the World Cup, who took an indefinite break from cricket to focus on his mental health and recover from a second operation on a broken finger.
England will face New Zealand in their final warm-up match in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday before starting their World Cup campaign against defending champions West Indies in Dubai on Saturday.
Morgan said he was impressed with all-rounder Maine Ali, who scored an unbeaten 20 off 20 balls against India.
“Maine is in good form. He was in great form in the Indian Premier League and yesterday he showed great confidence in the wicket,” Morgan said.
“You have to tell him the form you’re in, he’s a good player that we can use at any stage of the tournament.”
