Moeen Ali’s absence a ‘massive miss’ for Birmingham Phoenix – Liam Livingstone

News

The allrounder was added to the England squad ahead of the Lord’s Test against India

Liam Livingstone has admitted it is “obviously disappointing” for players to be pulled out of the Hundred for international duty but has backed Birmingham Phoenix to cope with the absence of their captain Moeen Ali for the final two group games.
Moeen, Phoenix’s leading run-scorer, captain and poster boy, was added to England’s squad ahead of Thursday’s second Test at Lord’s after their 93-run win against Welsh Fire at Edgbaston on Monday, which sent them top of the men’s points table. Saqib Mahmood, the Oval Invincibles seamer, was also added to the Test squad at short notice on Wednesday following Stuart Broad’s injury, and both players will miss the final two group games with their availability for the knockout stages unconfirmed.
