Barrow’s Liam Livingstone hit 16 runs as Perth Scorchers recorded another win in the Big Bash League (BBL) against Sydney Sixers.

The Scorchers beat the league leaders by 86 runs at Optus Stadium in Perth.

This was the side’s third win in a row after they were winless in the first four games of the current season.

It was also the Scorchers’ second successive home win after beating the Melbourne Renegades by 96 runs last Sunday.

The Sixers were set a target of 184 for a win, but were all bowled out for 97 in the 17th over.

Facing 13 balls, Livingstone hit two fours and one six on his way to recording 16 against the Sixers on Wednesday morning, finishing with a strike rate of 123.08.

The 27-year-old opened the batting with fellow Englishman Jason Roy, who produced 27 runs from 31 balls.

Following the game, the Scorchers’ captain Mitch Marsh, who put in a Player of the Match performance after hitting 57 runs from 27 deliveries, said that he wants the side to continue this home form.

He said: “I think we put up a very competitive total and our bowlers were tremendous too, we managed to take early wickets in the run chase to put the opposition under immense pressure and we were able to do that for the entire innings tonight.

“I thought taking the power surge when we did we gained great momentum and it was a good little partnership which got us to a really solid total.

“It has been nice to get on a roll, we are playing well at our home ground and hopefully Optus Stadium becomes a bit of a fortress for us.”

The Scorchers will now look to extend their winning run to four as they face Sydney Thunder at home this Saturday.
