Liam Livingstone has cemented his place in Team England. The all-rounder is renowned for lusty blows and wicket taking ability in limited-overs cricket.
Liam was a part of Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League but failed to justify his place. Keeping in mind his ordinary display, the Rajasthan based franchise released him ahead of IPL 2022.
In Liam Livingstone recent interview with CricTracker, he was asked to name a young Indian batsman who impressed him the most in IPL 2021. Livingstone took the name of Venkatesh Iyer, who plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders.
“What Venkatesh Iyer did in the second half was very impressive. He is a very good talent for Indian cricket. I was speaking to Morgan and he also rates him very highly. Venkatesh Iyer is probably one of the reasons why KKR did so well,” he said.
Iyer was retained by Kolkata based franchise before the mega auction.
