The following players have been nominated by Lancashire's Director of Cricket, Paul Allott.
The Lancashire Captain has been in scintillating form since the start of the Vitality Blast which has seen Lightning top the North Group after eight games.
Livingstone struck a stunning maiden T20 century against Derbyshire Falcons before hitting 79 off just 37 balls in the one-run win over Yorkshire Vikings at Emirates Old Trafford.
The 24 year-old now has 288 runs at an average of 48 (strike rate of 190) as well as seven wickets which included a T20 career best haul of 4/17 in the win over Leicestershire Foxes at Grace Road.
Unfortunately, Livingstone then broke his left thumb in the Specsavers County Championship Roses clash at Emirates Old Trafford which will see him out of action for the next month.
The Lancashire batsman is enjoying a fine run of Vitality Blast form with three half centuries already to his name in the opening eight matches.
He notched half centuries against Northants, Derbyshire and Leicestershire and averages over 78 with 235 runs so far in the competition.
His top score is 64* which saw Lancashire cruise to an eight wicket win over Northants Steelbacks at Emirates Old Trafford.
Lester has been arguably Lancashire's surprise package in this year's Vitality Blast this year and is the Club's leading wicket taker in the competition.
The 25 year-old has 10 wickets at an average of 17.8 and he took career-best figures of 4/25 in Lancashire's Vitality Blast win over Northants at Emirates Old Trafford.
Lester, whilst didn't take a wicket against Yorkshire, held his nerve in the Roses clash at Emirates Old Trafford and bowled the final over which saw Lancashire home to a one-run win in an epic Vitality Blast clash.
The Lancashire all-rounder has continued his consistent form so far this season into July, but it was in the one Specsavers County Championship game of the month where Clark made the headlines.
Clark became the fourth player in history to take a Championship Roses hat-trick and it was a hat-trick of epic proportions: Joe Root, Kane Williamson and Jonny Bairstow, two Test captains and the ICC’s third, fourth and 16th rated Test batsmen; with a small matter of 30,332 first-class runs, at a combined average of 47.8, and 14,639 Test runs between them.
He took career-best figures of 5/58 as Yorkshire were bowled out for 192. Clark now has 23 wickets and 480 runs in the Championship whilst he's chipped in with five wickets in the Vitality Blast and 82 runs, including an unbeaten 26 against Yorkshire at Emirates Old Trafford.
