Lancashire Cricket has announced that the English all-rounder Liam Livingstone has inked a contract extension with the team until the end of 2024. Livingstone made his debut back in 2015, the year when they won the T20 blast. Ever since then, he has always been an integral part of the Lancashire Cricket team.
On the contract extension, Livingstone said, “I have always said that it is a privilege to play for the Red Rose and I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue doing that until at least 2024 and hopefully much longer after that.
“The coaching team and supporters have shown great faith in me throughout my career and I am determined to pay that back by helping to deliver trophies to Emirates Old Trafford over the next few years.”
Lancashire’s director of cricket performance, Mark Chilton expressed his emotions by stating that he is very pleased to secure Liam’s services for the next three years.
He said, “Liam’s performance levels and reputation in world cricket continue to grow and he is a huge asset to our squad – in all formats of the game. At the age of 28, Liam is now one of the more experienced players in the dressing room at Lancashire. He’s a match-winner, destructive in all facets of the game now and those are the players that you want in your side.”
The hard-hitting batsman has featured in 163 games for the club, averaging 38.36 with a strike rate of 144.73 in the T20s. This gameplay has built a strong reputation for him, which has even earned him call-ups into England’s white-ball teams and different leagues around the world including the Indian Premier League and Big Bash League.
