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.

Biography

In December 2018, the Indian Premier League franchise Rajasthan Royals bought Livingstone in the 2019 player auction. In September 2019, the Cape Town Blitz team contracted Liam to play for them in the 2019 Mzansi Super League competition. Two months later, the Big Bash League franchise Perth Scorchers signed Liam for the 2019-20 BBL season. Rajasthan Royals released Liam ahead of the 2020 IPL auction. The ECB named Liam in May 2020 amongst the 55-member players’ group shortlisted for training in preparation for the post-pandemic international matches in England. In July 2020, Liam found himself in the 24-man England squad who began training behind closed doors for the then upcoming ODI series versus Ireland. In July 2020, following an injury sustained by England player Joe Denly, the ECB called up Liam to replace Denly in the ODI squad for the series versus South Africa.

Records and Facts

In April 2015, Liam scored 350 while representing his club Nantwich in a one-day game — the score is reportedly one of the highest scores in one-day matches. In that match, Livingstone’s club side Nantwich CC faced off against Caldy in the Royal London Club Championship in a 45-overs-a-side one day game in April 2015. Playing at Whitehouse Lane, Liam smashed 34 fours and 27 sixes in an innings of 350 off 138 balls, helping Nantwich to a monumental score of 579/7 in their allotted 45 overs. In reply, Caldy managed to score only 79/9, enabling Nantwich to win by a 500-run margin.

In 56 first-class matches, Liam has scored 2992 runs at 40.98 with 7 tons and 15 fifties, including his top score of 224. In 55 List A matches, Livingstone has scored 1552 runs at 36.09 with one ton and 10 fifties, including the top score of 129. In 126 T20 matches, Liam has scored 7011 runs at 26.88 with one ton and 17 fifties, including his top score of 100.

But no story about Liam Livingstone is complete without mentioning his brilliant season in the BBL 13. On 23 December 2019, Adelaide Strikers scored 198/4 in 18 overs in a rain-curtailed game. Though Perth Scorchers could manage only 183/7 in reply, they were very much on track when Liam was at the crease. He smashed 69 off 26 balls with five fours and seven sixes in a 124-run opening stand in only 8.4 overs with Josh Inglis. He did it again on 7 January 2020, this time against Melbourne Renegades. Renegades batted first and scored 175/5. Scorchers chased down the target in 19 overs with 6 wickets in hand thanks largely to Liam’s innings of 59 in 39 balls with 3 fours and four sixes and his 102-run stand in 10.1 overs with Josh Inglis. Two weeks later, on 20 January 2020, Sydney Thunder batted first against Scorchers and scored 153/5 in their allotted 20 overs. Liam got into the act yet again, scoring 78 off 49 balls with 6 fours and 4 sixes in a 136-run opening stand in 13.2 overs with Inglis. When Liam got out, the score was 151 for 2 in 15.1 overs, leaving Scorchers to get only 3 more runs with nearly 5 overs to spare. Four days later, on 24 January 2020, Liam gave another display of his phenomenal hitting ability. Scorchers chased 182 to win against Adelaide Strikers. Livingstone smashed 79 off 54 balls with one four and 7 sixes. Unfortunately for Liam and Scorchers, he did not receive adequate support from the other batsmen and Scorchers could manage only 165/7 and fell 17 runs short of the target.
