Liam Livingstone, the destructive middle-order batter from the England cricket team, is currently playing the T20 league Vitality Blast. Liam represents Lancashire in the Vitality Blast. He recently joined the league after his team Punjab Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs in Tata IPL 2022.
However, Livingstone was one of the talking points of IPL, with his hitting ability mesmerising everyone. In the current IPL, he has deposited a huge six of 117m which is the biggest six of this year’s edition. Livingstone repeated that same feat for Lancashire.
Liam Livingstone was playing in a game against Yorkshire when he smashed the monstrous six. He notched up 23 runs with the help of 2 fours and a single six. Nevertheless, his short burst was highly entertaining and eventful. The only six that he had hit travelled 128m in the air.
That. Is. Huge.

Mathew Revis was the bowler for Yorkshire in the 12th over of the inning when Livingstone decided to go big. He picked the bones out of the slot delivery which was bowled around at the 5th stump by Revis.
The monstrous hit over the cow corner went outside the stadium and made commentators and viewers in the stadium believe that he has already shattered his record from IPL. They were right, as it was pointed out later on that the ball travelled 128m before landing on the earth’s surface.
However, Liam Livingstone did not last long on the crease and departed after contributing only 23 runs. He was dismissed in the 14th over of the inning. Lancashire could not win the game but successfully managed to end it in a tie. Both Lancashire and Yorkshire gained one point each in the Vitality Blast.
Gleeson bowled the last over for Yorkshire to defend 13 runs, but Lancashire managed to collect 12 runs to force the tie. The match was filled with drama and excitement.
