Birmingham Phoenix all-rounder Liam Livingstone has been ruled out of the remainder of The Hundred with an ankle injury.

The 29-year-old, who sustained the injury following the Phoenix’s win over the Oval Invincibles, is currently being assessed by the ECB medical team.

Livingstone will be replaced by Nottinghamshire batter Sol Budinger who will join the squad immediately ahead of Sunday’s home fixture against Manchester Originals.

Craig Flindall, Birmingham Phoenix General Manager, said: “We’re disappointed to lose Liam, not just for his performances on the pitch, but also his leadership within the group.

“While Liam will be a miss, it’s an exciting opportunity for other players to show what they can do as we look to reach the final stages of the competition.”
