LIAM Livingstone and Lancashire are full of confidence as they head into tonight's Vitality T20 Blast Roses clash with Yorkshire.

The Red Rose county, led by their in-form Barrovian captain, sit top of the North Division with four wins from four so far.

Livingstone, who struck his maiden T20 century off 51 balls in the opening win against Derbyshire in Derby and followed up with 44 in the reverse fixture, is thrilled to see the team in such impressive form, with Northamptonshire and Leicestershire also disposed of.

“It feels like we are building a bit of momentum,” Livingstone said ahead of tonight's big game. “We have proved we are a very good white-ball team at the moment, but you have to perform in the middle and it will be a tough game for us against Yorkshire on Friday night.

“Everyone is very excited about that game and hopefully we can carry on doing what we are doing.”

It was with the ball that Livingstone impressed in Lancashire's eight-wicket win over Leicestershire Foxes at Grace Road on Wednesday night.

He took career-best figures of 4 for 17 from his four overs of off-spin – including taking two wickets in an over – as well as snaffling two catches and scoring a breezy 28 at the top of the order in reply.

After a bright start, the Foxes collapsed from 88 for 1 in the 10th over to be all out for a disappointing 142 in the 20th after Lancashire had won the toss and put them in.

Livingstone and leg-spinner Matt Parkinson between them claimed five for 39 from eight overs as the Foxes were well and truly shackled, hitting only one boundary between the 10th over and the 17th and losing six wickets in the process.

The captain then smashed the first three balls he faced for four off Pakistan strike bowler Mohammad Abbas on the way to 28 off 11 deliveries to give his side a flying start in pursuit of their target.

“It was a good night for us,” said Barrow Cricket Club product Livingstone. “We set out our stall to play aggressive cricket and we’ve done that tonight, taking wickets at key times and taking the attack to them with the bat.

“We thought their score was under par but we knew the Powerplay was vital, so it was one of those where you go as hard as you can and on this occasion it worked for us.

“I wasn’t expecting to bowl too much tonight but sometimes it is your day and it was nice to contribute with the ball.”

Livingstone was dropped twice as he swung at everything against Leicestershire, the 24-year-old all-rounder eventually caught by Mohammad Nabi at mid-on (who had put him down off the previous ball) off Ben Raine.

After closing the power-play on 68 for 1 Lightning lost Arron Lilley for a 12-ball 19 when Matt Parkinson’s twin brother Callum came into the Foxes attack but never looked in any danger of falling short of their target.

Opener Alex Davies (51) and England’s Keaton Jennings (37) were able to ease them over the line with 20 balls to spare thanks to an unbroken partnership of 70.

Earlier, Livingstone's dismissal of Neil Dexter in the 10th over sparked a flurry of wickets as the Foxes went from 88 for 1 to 91 for 4 in the space of six deliveries.

Raine was bowled first ball by Livingstone before Dane Vilas executed an easy stumping to see off Cosgrove off Parkinson.

After Nabi and Colin Ackermann had holed out off Livingstone, Foxes were 102 for 6 and never really recovered in a meaningful way, some lusty blows from Zak Chappell near the end coming as too little too late.

Lancashire will go into tonight’s game full of confidence, especially with Jos Buttler available.
