Liam Livingstone in doubt for T20 World Cup opener after injuring finger in warm-up match


Allrounder left field during England’s seven-wicket defeat to India, will be assessed in 24 hours

Liam Livingstone is a minor doubt for England’s opening fixture of the men’s T20 World Cup against West Indies on Saturday after suffering a finger injury during their first warm-up match against India in Dubai.
Livingstone was injured while dropping a catch at deep midwicket during England’s seven-wicket defeat, when Ishan Kishan pulled Chris Jordan into the leg side. Livingstone appeared to lose the ball in the lights – which were not as bright as in most internationals, with the game played at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai – and immediately looked in pain, with swelling visible on the little finger of his left hand.

He left the field alongside England’s physio, with Sam Billings coming on as a substitute fielder, and took no further part in the match. An England spokesperson said that the injury would be assessed “in [the] next 24 hours” once the swelling had gone down.
