England star all-rounder Liam Livingstone has been ruled out of the ongoing test series against Pakistan. He debuted in the first test encounter against Green Army in Rawalpindi. On the day second, of the test match, he injured his knee during fielding.
The medical reports revealed that his cartilage is damaged, and he is suggested to rest for around eight weeks for a full recovery, and now he will fly back to his hometown.
English team management hasn’t announced his replacement for the ongoing test series against Pakistan, but another young leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed will likely get his place in the squad in the second test match and can make his debut in that test.
Earlier, Rehan showed brilliant performance in “The hundred” league, and now the 18-year-old leg spinner is likely to get the chance to play the longest format of cricket. Despite him, Liam Dawson would also be a better option for the English team if he was called up as a replacement.
Currently, the fifth day of the match is going on, and the host requires 205 runs to win the clash; however English team needs to take seven wickets for the first win of the series.
The second test match of the series will be on 9th December at Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan.
