All sorts of records were set and broken in a club match betwwen In a record breaking innings, a 21-year-old batsman from Lancashire’s Nantwich Cricket Club scripted history in the game of cricket by smashing 350 in 138 balls in a club match, on Sunday.

The 21-year-old all-rounder, who has yet to make his first-team debut for the Red Rose, plundered 34 fours and 27 sixes in his remarkable 138-ball innings. Livingstone’s efforts helped Nantwich to compile 579 for seven from their 45 overs and they earned a staggering 500-run victory when they skittled Caldy for just 79.

Last summer Livingstone sub-fielded for England in the Emirates Old Trafford Test against India after Stuart Broad got hit by a bouncer which burst through his helmet and broke his nose.

“That was a great experience for me, and something obviously unexpected. Broad got one through the helmet, so I was on for the whole innings. Usually you only go on for an over or so whilst a bowler comes off and comes back on again.
