Great fifty from Livingstone. If he can recreate this form in the IPL, away from English pitches, then we'll know how good he is

If there was an exam for self belief, Livingstone would have got 100 out of 100.
Despite his lack of form, I would have opened with him in the T20 WC SF. Loads of self belief.

Meanwhile, Livingstone smashed the second-fastest fifty of IPL 2022. The fastest fifty record still belongs to KKR’s Pat Cummins, who reached his fifty off just 14 balls vs Mumbai Indians.
