Liam Livingstone won a trophy in his first season in Lancashire colours when they triumphed at Edgbaston on Finals Day in the 2015 NatWest Blast. His satisfaction did not come without mishap, however, after he was glassed (and deemed an innocent party) in a late-night incident in an Ashford bar after the quarter-final win against Kent and needed around 20 stitches. A first-ball duck, bowled by Northants' Shahid Afridi, added to his misery in the final, but Lancashire were hopeful that they had a big hitter on their hands.
He had first attracted media attention as the season began by striking 350 in 138 balls for his club side Nantwich in a mismatch which saw them beat Caldy by 500 runs. It was held to be one of the largest individual scores in any officially-sanctioned limited-overs fixture.
He had moderate success in 2015/16 in a club season in Perth, but Lancashire's coach, Ashley Giles, gave him an opportunity in all formats and was rewarded when he topped Lancashire's Championship batting averages, building on a maiden Championship hundred against Somerset in Taunton. England Lions' interest was quickened.
It was Livingstone's penchant for dominating Lancashire's old rivals from across the Pennines, Yorkshire which had first gladdened Red Rose hearts. Livingstone, a hard-hitting batsman and leg-break bowler from Barrow, scored hundreds in every format against Yorkshire in 2013 (including a 47-ball hundred with 10 sixes), then added a double century for good measure the following season.

This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
