Liam Livingstone is a 27-year-old right-handed English batsman and an occasional spin bowler who has been playing first-class cricket for Lancashire since 2016. He received his county cap in 2017 after he had stood in as captain to lead Lancashire to their first win of the season. He was made permanent captain in 2018. The English Cricket Board (ECB) named Liam in June 2017 in the T20I squad for the then upcoming series versus South Africa and he made his T20I debut the same month. After an Ashes winter of 2017-18 with the England Lions side, Livingstone was included in the England side for the two-match series versus New Zealand in January 2018.
