Punjab Kings’ explosive hitter Liam Livingstone continues on his best form this season as he scored another 3rd fifty of the season on Sunday 17th April against Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the 11th over, Livingstone hit a monstrous six against Umran Malik past the middle wicket which turned out to be 106 yards long.
Liam Livingstone hit aggressively and reached the half-century in just 16 deliveries, hitting fours and sixes. His partner Shahrukh Khan also batted sensibly to keep the scoreboard moving. Both had a brilliant partnership of 71 runs.
But Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed both Liam Livingstone (60) and Khan (26). In the 6th ball of the 18t over, Bhuvneshwar threw a long ball to Liam Livingstone. Livingstone attempted to shove it offside for a single to hold the batting for the next over. But he ended up running him for cover. Kane Williamson caught the ball and sent off the dangerous looking Livingstone.
