Livingstone blasts Perth Scorchers to Big Bash final

Liam Livingstone hit 77 off just 39 deliveries to blast Perth Scorchers to the Big Bash final where they will take on Sydney Sixers this weekend.

The Lancashire and England batsman thumped five fours and six sixes in a stunning knock and Perth kept going even after his dismissal as Mitch Marsh hammered an unbeaten 49 from 28 balls to take the Western Australians to 189-1 in 18.1 overs before the rain came.

When play resumed, Brisbane never came close to reaching their adjusted target of 200 from 18 overs as they limped to 150-9 to lose by 49 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method.

“The confidence within the camp is pretty special....we’ve almost played the perfect game [against Brisbane],” Livingstone said. “I hope they were watching and they’re running scared.

“They’ve beaten us a couple of times. It’s away from here [Manuka Oval] thankfully. Playing this game [knock-out final] can go one of two ways. You can get a bit of momentum, which we hopefully got and they haven’t had a chance to get.”

“I guess it’ll be a bit bigger after what happened in the last game, which is great for us,” he said. “The better we play is when we get in a fight. So hopefully we can bring our A game on Saturday and come out on top.”
