Livingstone, Gleeson go head-to-head in Big Bash

Livingstone, Gleeson go head-to-head in Big Bash

Livingstone's Perth Scorchers come out on top against Gleeson and the Melbourne Renegades in Geelong

It was a contest that featured a ball where it hurts, a six out of the ground and eventually a wicket as Liam Livingstone and Richard Gleeson faced off in the Big Bash League today (7 January).

Gleeson dismissed Livingstone for the second time in the competition, both caught by Aaron Finch, but not before the Cumbrian had struck 59 off 39 balls to put his side on the road to victory in Geelong.

Livingstone's knock, which contained 3x4s and 4x6s, was one of the most eventful in the tournament.

Gleeson's over started with a delivery which careered into Livingstone's groin area, momentarily flooring the right-hander.

It took a few balls to get his breath back before the 26-year-old launched one of the biggest sixes of the tournament so far, smashing his Red Rose team mate out of the ground.

The batsmen was floored yet again in the fifth, an over from which he scored 17 before taking Samit Patel's first ball of the sixth for another maximum to move to 39 off 24 balls.

He struck another big six shortly after reaching his fifty in fortuitous fashion, dropped by Renegades skipper Aaron Finch running back at cover.

Gleeson and Finch got their revenge soon after, however, as Livingstone drove his Lancashire team mate to Finch at short cover.

The Scorchers completed their pursuit of 176 with an over to spare, moving up to sixth in the eight-team tournament. The Renegades remain winless after seven matches.
