Liam Livingstone, a right-handed hard-hitting batter from England, is set to join Peshawar Zalmi ahead of the Lahore leg of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) starting on February 10.
Due to national obligations, the 28-year-old, who has played 17 T20 internationals for England, was unable to participate in the opening phase of the PSL. England was defeated by the West Indies in a five-match series by a score of 2-3.
In the just-finished T20I series, the right-handed middle-order hitter failed to impress, scoring 11, 16, and 6 runs in three T20I games.
In the platinum category, Peshawar Zalmi has retained the England batter alongside Wahab Riaz.
The franchise will be hoping he can have an immediate impact, since the team is currently in fourth place in the PSL standings, ahead of Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings.
The Englishman can bowl both right-arm leg and off-spin, so he might help the team out in the bowling department.
Peshawar Zalmi had a disappointing Karachi Leg, losing three of their five games at the National Stadium Karachi.
On February 10, Zalmi will meet the defending champions and table-toppers Multan Sultans in their first Lahore match of the season.
