LONDON: England rising batsman Liam Livingstone is eagerly waiting to play in Pakistan at the upcoming fourth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL), scheduled to begin in February.
“I am delighted to have been chosen by Karachi Kings for the upcoming PSL tournament. I have heard a lot of good things about this competition and it’s great that the tournament is being played in Dubai and Pakistan,” said Liam, quoted PakPassion.
The 25-year-old, who has represented England in two T20Is and has been a regular feature at the domestic circuit representing the Lancashire team, was picked up by the Karachi Kings in the PSL Draft back in November, as it turn out that the legendary fast-bowler Wasim Akram and current Kings President played a pivotal role in his selection.
“I am sure my good performance for Lancashire in a game against Yorkshire last year in UAE which Wasim Akram watched would have helped in my selection for Karachi,” he said.
The youngster was of the view that playing in Pakistan will be an opportunity of a lifetime, which he is eager to grab on to. “I do feel that it’s very exciting for the PSL to be going back to Pakistan and yes I would jump at the opportunity to get out to Pakistan and play in the stadiums in a country where cricket is like a religion.”
