If there is one name in world cricket which has created lot of buzz in recent times, it has to be England's Liam Livingstone. The stylish all-rounder has been widely praised by cricket experts across the globe for his raw power and big-hitting abilities which he has displayed while playing various franchise leagues across the globe.

His heroics in 'The Hundred' were witnessed by everyone but he could not really reproduce similar performances in second phase of IPL 2021. He did show glimpses of his talent in the T20 World Cup with both bat and ball but on Saturday, he really demonstrated what he is actually capable of on the cricket field.

Livingstone storm in Abu Dhabi

During the Abu Dhabi T10 League match between Team Abu Dhabi and Northern Warriors, Livingstone came to the crease with his side in slight trouble. After he got a second life with a simple catch being dropped, the 28-year-old ensured that he will make the opposition pay for the big mistake.

Team Abu Dhabi's captain absolutely wreaked havoc as he smashed the bowlers all over the park. He smashed 2 fours and 8 sixes in a knock where he scored 68 runs off 23 balls, batting at a phenomenal strike-rate of 295.65. Livingstone's breathtaking innings also featured him smashing Joshua Little for 35 runs in the penultimate over of first innings, which had 4 sixes, 2 fours and 3 wides.

Livingstone's explosive knock helped his side post 132/5 in 10 overs as Team Abu Dhabi eventually went on to win the match comfortably by 21 runs. He was rightly awarded 'man of the match' for one of the best ever knocks ever played in history of the tournament.
