Liam Stephen Livingstone (born 4 August 1993) is an English cricketer who represents Lancashire cricket.

Livingstone is an all rounder who is a right-handed batsman and bowls both right-arm leg and off spin.[1] He made his Twenty20 debut for Lancashire against Leicestershire in May 2015, scoring 15.[2]

On 19 April 2015, Livingstone gained media coverage after scoring 350 off 138 balls for his club side Nantwich, reported to be one of the highest individual scores in one-day history.[3][4]

Livingstone is a highly rated prospect and has been tipped to go on to become a regular international.[5] In June 2017, he was named in England's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the series against South Africa.[6] He made his T20I debut for England against South Africa on 23 June 2017.[7]

On 30 November 2017, Liam was appointed as captain of Lancashire for the 2018 season, replacing Steven Croft.[8]

On 10 January 2018 Liam received his first call up to the England Test Squad for their upcoming two-match series against New Zealand following a strong performance for the England Lions side during the Ashes Winter of 2017/18, in which national selector James Whitaker said that Livingstone had been a 'standout performer'.[9]

In December 2018, he was bought by the Rajasthan Royals in the player auction for the 2019 Indian Premier League.[10][11] In September 2019, he was named in the squad for the Cape Town Blitz team for the 2019 Mzansi Super League tournament.[12]

In November 2019, he signed with Perth Scorchers for the 2019-20 Big Bash League tournament.[13] He was released by the Rajasthan Royals ahead of the 2020 IPL auction.[14]
