Liam Livingstone deals the ailing Big Bash League a Severe Blow

The Big Bash League, Australia's top domestic competition, will start on December 13. The struggling league, and the Melbourne Renegades in particular, took a serious hit before the game even started when their top pick Liam Livingstone withdrew.

The 29-year-old was the first international player to be selected by a team in the first overseas draught, but he has left the league because of an increasing workload.

Due to a commitment to the inaugural SA20 league, Livingstone was meant to miss the second half of the competition. Liam was nevertheless included in the England Test team for the upcoming three-game tour of Pakistan.

After the Test series and prior to the SA20 league, the Renegades had high hopes for Liam's service for a brief period of time. Livingstone, though, made the decision to stop completely.

The Melbourne Renegades are left without a platinum player as a result of this decision. We are devastated that Liam won't be a member of our team, but we understand his decision, said Renegades general manager James Rosengarten in response to the news.
