LIAM Livingstone starred with both bat and ball as England Lions ended their tour to the UAE with a four-wicket victory over Pakistan A in the second Twenty20 match between the teams.

The Barrow Cricket Club product took 3 for 24 from his four overs of legbreak bowling as Pakistan made 139 for 9 from their 20 overs in the match in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

He then clubbed an unbeaten 39 off just 19 balls to see the Lions over the line and secure a 2-0 win in the Twenty20 series.

Livingstone, who opened the bowling, wasted little time in getting stuck into Pakistan after they elected to bat first, removing opener Mukhtar Ahmed for one early on.

The 25-year-old accounted for Israullah (seven), who was caught behind by wicketkeeper Alex Davies, and Adil Amin, who was bowled for 28, as well.

Lancashire all-rounder Livingstone then came to the crease with England 98 for 5 in reply and with just over five overs remaining.

Along with Ollie Pope, who chipped in with 15 off 13 balls, he helped see England over the line with his quickfire batting, which included one four and three sixes.

One of those maximums turned out to be the winning runs too, which came with seven balls to spare.
