Liam Livingstone channels ‘inner child’ in six-hitting competition with other England players
Liam Livingstone says his “inner child” helped Joss Butler become England’s most explosive white pitcher.
England will met the Netherlands in the third international match in one day on Wednesday. This is when the duo reached an incredible of 162 off 70 balls in the opening match.
Butler said Livingstone could score more sixes than anyone else in limited circumstances after a 498-4 record in England’s first ODI.
Livingstone was given the role of standing and returning in midfield from England and was empowered to find boundaries from the moment he got to the corner, usually at the end of the campaign.
In his first game against the Dutchman, AB apparently broke the fastest 50 record in Villiers’ ODI with a few balls.
The 28-year-old struck just 48 off just 14 balls on VRA cricket ground on Friday, but missed Shane Snatter’s next pass to score six more.
“Actually, I do not know. I’m disappointed I missed the last two goals to get me there. It’s not a personal event, but it’s very exciting to be involved in setting records with the team,” Livingstone said.
Not fit Morgan skips training
England held an optional training session on Tuesday, with captain Owen Morgan refusing to attend despite the first two consecutive defeats to the Netherlands.
Maybe Morgan’s decision reflects his thinking about game preparation, or maybe it’s new manager Matthew Mott’s approach to the erosion period, to retire to clear his head and not exaggerate.
British sailor Sam Koran hugged world champion Captain Morgan behind Jason Roy’s left arm.
“I think that’s why it’s such a good team, everyone wakes up at a different time. I think that’s the genius of the team – every day, every game, a different player, that’s what makes the team so good.”
