Big shock to Punjab! ‘This’ star player will miss the match against KKR, know
Only a few days are left for the start of the Indian Premier League 2023 tournament. The competition will start from March 31. However, the Punjab Kings team has already suffered a big blow. England’s explosive batsman Liam Livingstone will not be able to play in the first match of IPL 2023 against Punjab Kings. This has increased the concern of the Punjab team.
The England and Wales Cricket Board has yet to give Liam Livingstone a fitness certificate after recovering from a knee injury sustained in December. The second match of the tournament will be played between Punjab Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders on April 1. Punjab’s campaign in the tournament will start from this match.

In fact, Livingstone was injured on his Test debut against Pakistan in December. He has not played competitive cricket since then. The 29-year-old Livingstone also suffered an ankle injury while playing in ‘The Hundred’ tournament at home last year.
According to media reports, Livingstone has been ruled out of the first match. Because, he is being scanned by the ECB to determine his fitness status. In that case, he is likely to be available for the second match.
Livingstone posted a video on his social media account on Wednesday (March 29) in which he was seen bowling in the nets. Livingstone performed best in the IPL last season. He scored 437 runs in 14 matches at an average of 36.42. Meanwhile his strike rate was 182.08. Livingstone is known for hitting big shots. He has played 12 ODIs and 29 T20Is for England. In the previous season, he also took 6 wickets with spin bowling.
Punjab has the most expensive player in IPL
Interestingly, England’s Sam Curran, who became the most expensive player in IPL history, is also in the Punjab squad. Apart from Livingstone, Punjab will also miss South Africa’s top bowler Kagiso Rabada. Because he will not be able to play against KKR as he is part of the national team.
