English batsmen Liam Livingstone hit the biggest six ever when he beat Pakistani Haris Rauf for a 121.96M hit that landed outside the Headingley site on July 18, 2021.
The right-handed batsman is in fine form and is busy with a century in the first T20I, which was also the fastest by an Englishman in the international T20 format. Although England lost that match by 233 to win, Livingstone saw to it that the English selectors wrote down its name for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
Liam Livingstone’s Six Countries Outside The Leeds Ground
On the first delivery of the 13th over, his 14th of this match, Livingstone knocked Pakistani versatile Imad Wasim off the ground for a huge six. However, this does not seem to be enough, as Livingstone likes Haris Rauf, the Pakistani speedster.
Livingstone continued his six-goal series when he attacked Rauf again, only to send the ball out of the stadium. In a complete, straightforward and harmless delivery, Livingstone cleaned his forepaw to hit Rauf straight over his head. The ball sailed straight over the bowler’s head as he emerged from the Leeds ground in Headingley, which was a sight for all to see.
Although no official confirmation came from the ICC, social media and commentators praised Livingstone, saying it was one of the biggest hits they had ever seen. Some even calculate it as a hit of 121.96 M, which is officially the biggest six recorded according to the record books.
Before running out in the same over, Livingstone scored 38 (23 balls) using two fours and three sixes. Jos Buttler replaced regular captain Eoin Morgan for this game, with 59 (39) on his national return. England put 200 on board with Pakistani Mohammad Hasnain, their highest wicket-taker at Headingley with bowling figures of 4-0-51-3.
Pakistan, on the other hand, had a good start to their chase when Babar Azam (22) and Mohammad Rizwan (37) added 50 runs in 5.4 overs for the first wicket.
