Liam Livingstone Not Playing PBKS vs GT IPL 2023

The biggest breaking news coming from the Punjab Kings (PBKS) camp is that they are still not playing their star overseas player Liam Livingstone in their fourth game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Punjab Kings will definitely want to make a strong comeback after having suffered a poor 8-wicket defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their most recent IPL 2023 match. The Shikhar Dhawan-led PBKS team have already won two really good games in a row during this tournament so far.

After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, the Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan mentioned that Liam Livingstone is still not part of the PBKS playing 11 in the PBKS vs GT IPL 2023 match on Thursday. Interestingly, Livingstone has already joined the Punjab Kings camp ahead of this game after having came late as he was awaiting a fitness clearance from the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB). However, it seems that the England all-rounder is still not completely fit after having suffered a knee injury in December 2022 and has not played any competitive cricket since then. The Punjab Kings are playing both Matthew Short and Bhanuka Rajapaksa in the playing 11 against Gujarat Titans.

“Doesn’t bother us. Were looking to bowl first. We have been playing good cricket. Quite normal to go through this in cricket. Won’t be the first time or the last (loss against SRH). Looking forward to put up a great show. Two changes – Rabada coming in for Nathan. Bhanuka coming in for Raza,” said Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan during the toss.
