Liam Livingstone was subjected to sledging from fans at the SCG during the BBL final on Saturday.

Standing on the boundary during the Sydney Sixers’ innings, Livingstone told broadcasters that supporters were trying to get under the Barrovian’s skin.

The Perth Scorchers player said: “I have been told if I was any good, I would be in India, which is a fair point!”

Unfortunately for Livingstone and the Scorchers, they were unable to reach the 189-run target, as they lost the BBL final by 27 runs.

After hitting 77 runs in the Challenger against Brisbane Heat, the 27-year-old was only able to put up 45 off 35 balls before being dismissed.

Facing a delivery in the eleventh over from Jackson Bird, Livingstone was looking to add to his two maximums, but his leg-side shot was caught by Jordan Silk in the eleventh over.

The Scorchers had made a good start to their innings and had recorded more runs than the Sixers at the halfway stage of their innings.

At 10 overs, the Scorchers had earned 91 runs compared to the Sixers’ 87.

However, one over later Livingstone’s side began to fall away from the required runs per over, as they went on to score 161 runs.

Following the final loss, Livingstone thanked his teammates and fans for their support during the season.

He said on Instagram: “My time with the Perth Scorchers this year is done. What a great couple of months it’s been, thanks to all the players and staff for making my time so enjoyable and thanks to the fans for the love and support. To be able to play in front of crowds again has been amazing and thanks to everyone involved with BBL for getting the tournament on. Now it’s time to get home and have some time off.”
