Punjab Kings (PBKS) all-rounder Liam Livingstone played a brutal knock against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), single-handedly putting PBKS in the driver’s seat after they lost two quick wickets on Sunday.

Down 14/2, Livingstone walked in and played his natural game. He played aggressively right from the get-go and smashed his way to a 32-ball 60 that included 5 fours and 5 maximums.

The first two games didn’t go my way, but [it’s] nice to contribute to a win. We got to a target we thought was defendable and the seam bowlers set it up for us. We wanted to be aggressive and as exciting as we can. Nice to get a few today, but as I said the seamers set it up in the powerplay,” Livingstone said in the post-match presentation ceremony.

After helping PBKS post 180 on the board, Livingstone came back and delivered with the ball as well. He picked up two wickets off two balls, one of Shivam Dube, who was CSK’s top-scorer on the night.

I’ve been swinging hard, so nice to get it off the middle today. But it was all about the seamers. I play my own way and I struggled a bit with Rajasthan as well. Hopefully, this will bring some confidence. Bowling is something I really enjoy and I keep practicing. Hopefully, I’ll come more and more into the game,” he further added.

He finished with figures of 2/25 in three overs and also took two catches, including the one that finished the game. With the win, PBKS now has 2 victories in 3 games while CSK has 3 defeats in 3 matches.
