Liam Livingstone Not Playing PBKS vs KKR IPL 2023

The massive breaking news update coming from the Punjab Kings (PBKS) camp is that their swashbuckling batsman Liam Livingstone will not be playing their first league stage match of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. The Punjab Kings have faced quite mixed fortunes during the previous few seasons of the Indian Premier League but the important fact is that they have not qualified for the playoffs. However, Punjab Kings will be looking forward to put up an improved show in IPL 2023.

PBKS vs KKR: Why is Liam Livingstone Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

Punjab Kings’ overseas big-hitting batsman Liam Livingstone is not available for selection in the PBKS vs KKR IPL 2023 match as he is yet to get a fitness clearance from the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after he suffered a knee injury in December. Incidentally, the England swashbuckling all-rounder has not played any competitive cricket since the Test match in Pakistan where he sustained the knee injury. However, Livingstone’s absence will be a huge miss for the Punjab Kings after his fabulous performance in IPL 2022 where he smashed a brilliant total of 437 runs from as many as 14 matches at a phenomenal strike-rate of over 182 that included 4 fifties.
