Liam Livingstone bought by Rajasthan Royals in IPL draft
Lancashire bastman picked up in IPL
Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone will play for Rajasthan Royals in the 2019 Indian Premier League.
Livingstone was bought for approximately £56,000 during Tuesday's auction in Jaipur ahead of the tournament, which starts at the end of March.
This will be the 25-year-old's first involvement in the tournament, after enjoying a strong Vitality Blast campaign as Lancashire Lightning reached Finals Day, scoring 318 runs at an average of 45, including his first T20 century at Derbyshire.
He will join Lancashire teammate Jos Buttler in the squad, while Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer also represent the Royals.
Rajasthan Royals are based in the city of Jaipur, founded in 2008 as one of the original eight IPL franchises.
The team won the inaugural edition of the IPL under the captaincy of Shane Warne.
Livingstone was also selected by Karachi Kings in the draft for the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League, which will start in February.
