This broke the record for the highest score in any form of one day cricket. The record used to be 334, which was made by 15-year-old Indian batsman Nikhilesh Surendran in an inter-school match in Hyderabad in 2008.
Livingstone’s score involved 34 fours and 27 sixes, with the 21-year-old taking apart the Caldy attack. The team went on to score 579-7 off their 50 overs, and bowled out their meek opposition for 79 for a mammoth 500 run win.
The all rounder, who can also bowl leg spin, is currently contracted to Lancashire. However, he is yet to take part in any match for the county side. He has featured for their second XI though, hitting a double hundred against rivals Yorkshire’s reserve side at the end of last summer.
