Cricket News: Eoin Morgan Guarantees Liam Livingstone’s Spot in England’s World Cup Starting Lineup


Sep 9, 2023

Liam Livingstone showed impressive form in England’s first one-day international against New Zealand, scoring 52 runs from 40 balls, including three consecutive sixes off Kyle Jamieson. After struggling in The Hundred, Livingstone’s return to form in Wales has impressed Sky Sports Cricket’s Eoin Morgan, who believes he is a “dead cert” for England’s first XI at the Cricket World Cup. Livingstone not only contributes with his batting but also offers an additional spin-bowling option.

Former England captain Andrew Flintoff is currently working with the England side during the ODIs against New Zealand. Livingstone expressed his delight at being able to spend time with his “hero”, stating that having someone with Flintoff’s experience around is beneficial for all the players. Livingstone values the opportunity to pick Flintoff’s brains about the game, especially while batting.

Sky Sports Cricket’s Nasser Hussain believes that Harry Brook should be included in England’s first XI at the World Cup. Brook was not initially selected in the provisional squad but has since displayed strong performances in The Hundred and the T20I series against New Zealand. Hussain considers Brook to be an exceptional talent who could make a significant impact at the World Cup and contribute not just with his batting but also his fielding skills.

Fans can watch the second ODI between England and New Zealand live on Sky Sports Cricket from The Ageas Bowl in Southampton. The match begins at 10.30am, with the first ball being bowled at 11am. Viewers also have the option to stream the match with NOW.
