Punjab Kings' batter Liam Livingstone continued his sublime batting form in the IPL form against the Mumbai Indians as he smashed Jofra Archer for three consecutive sixes. After a decent start to their innings, the Punjab lower-batting order managed to replicate their performance from their previous game against Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium.
As the carnage continued, Livingstone was on strike to start off the 19th over of the first innings and smashed Archer's slower ball over the long-on stands for a 91-metre six. Then on the second ball, Livingstone hit another maximum over long-on which went 92m far.
The 3rd ball of the over was no different as the 29-year-old hit his third six of the over. This incredible stroke play pushed PBKS to a score of 214 runs with Livingstone putting up 82 in 42 balls with seven fours and four sixes.

After this massive over, Mumbai Indians managed to pull things back courtesy of a nine-run over by Akash Madhwal. Reacting to this performance, Liam Livingstone spoke about how the pitch allowed him to score freely.
He said, "It felt like a good pitch, playing spin was quite difficult. I tried to ensure that we do not lose wickets in clumps, it's a good score. It's a good pitch, so we will have to bowl well. It's nice to get going. I had lunch with Archer today and he said he was going to come after me. He (Archer) knows what I don't like. Playing spin was a bit harder, but I picked by bowlers pretty well today."
