Liam Livingstone hit the winning runs with his tenth maximum to send the Birmingham Phoenix to the men’s Hundred final at Lord’s on Saturday. Livingstone, the Phoenix skipper in the absence of Moeen Ali, hit 92 not out off 40 deliveries in the end, hitting the tournament’s fastest fifty so far in the process. It was such a good knock that some were talking of a suprise call-up to England’s Test squad. The other star performer for the Phoenix was Adam Milne, who put on a brilliant display of yorker bowling at the death, taking 2-24 off his 20 balls.
3/25 & 92* (40). Liam Livingstone, that was insane.
