Liam Livingstone re-signs for Perth Scorchers in Big Bash
Lancashire all-rounder Liam Livingstone has signed for the Perth Scorchers for the upcoming Big Bash in Australia.
The hard-hitting batsmen enjoyed a stellar debut BBL season last year, hitting 425 runs at an average of 30.36 and at a strike rate of 142.62 to top the Scorchers run scoring.
Livingstone formed a dangerous top-order partnership alongside wicketkeeper Josh Inglis, with the pair producing three opening-stands of more than 100 runs over the course of the competition.
His standout performance in BBL|09 came against the Adelaide Strikers when he belted seven sixes on his way to 79 in a 54-ball blitz.
Livingstone said: “I loved my time with Perth last season, I can’t wait to get back out there and get that orange playing shirt back on.
“I enjoyed opening the batting last year and formed a great partnership with Josh Inglis, hopefully we can pick up where we left off and continue to entertain the Perth supporters.
“The Scorchers have a rich history in the BBL, hopefully we can start the season strong and add another Big Bash title to the collection.”
Perth Scorchers coach Adam Voges added: “It’s terrific that Liam has agreed to join us again for BBL|10, he made a great impression last season finishing as one of the competition’s leading run scorers.
“He fitted in very well with our group and along with his handy leg spin and energetic fielding, he brings a wealth of talent to the team.”
