Liam Livingstone scores world record 350 in one-day cricket match

20-Apr-2015

Liam Livingstone scored 350 for club side Nantwich against Caldy in the Royal London Club Championship at Whitehouse Lane. Nantwich posted 7-579 from 45 overs completing a 500-run win after Caldy were held to 9-79.

The 21-year-old batsman, who has played for county team Lancashire's 2nd XI, struck 34 fours and 27 sixes in an innings that lasted just 138 balls.Livingstone found the boundary every 2.26 deliveries with a strike rate of 254 runs per 100 balls.

 

It was not the first time he has unleashed his power hitting.Playing for Lancashire's 2nd XI last year he scored 204 from 242 balls against Yorkshire while in 2013 he completed a 47-ball hundred also against Yorkshire in a 2nd XI Twenty20 match.

While the numbers are not quite as impressive as Livingstone's knock, given they were scored at the highest level of the game, the top individual scores in one-day international cricket are certainly worth a mention.

Leading the way at international level is Indian Rohit Sharma, who stunned Sri Lanka when he plundered an incredible 264 off 173 deliveries at Kolkata in November last year.
