Enjoying watching Liam Livingstone bat. Such a range.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 17, 2022
I really think @liaml4893 could be a really good Test No 6/7 !! His technique is good enough .. Plus what he could offer with his bowling / fielding & confidence is something I would like to see in the team .. #IPL2022— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) April 17, 2022
