Liam Stephen Livingstone (born 4 August 1993) is an English cricketer who, despite being born in Cumbria, represents Lancashire and will captain them for the 2018 season.

Livingstone is an All rounder who is a right-handed batsman and bowls right-arm leg breaks. He made his Twenty20 debut for Lancashire against Leicestershire in May 2015, scoring 15.[1]

On 19 April 2015, Livingstone gained modest media coverage after scoring 350 off 138 balls for his club side Nantwich CC, reported to be one of the highest individual scores in one-day history.[2][3]

Livingstone is a highly rated prospect and has been tipped to go on to become a regular international.[4] In June 2017, he was named in England's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the series against South Africa.[5] He made his T20I debut for England against South Africa on 23 June 2017.[6]

On 30 November 2017, Liam was appointed as captain of Lancashire for the 2018 season, replacing Steven Croft.[7]

On 10 January 2018 Liam received his first call up to the England Test Squad for their upcoming two-match series against New Zealand following a strong performance for the England Lions side during the Ashes Winter of 2017/18, in which national selector James Whitaker said that Livingstone had been a 'standout performer'.[8]
