Lancashire’s Liam Livingstone scored a reported world-record 350 for Nantwich Town in a National Club Championship match against Caldy

The 21-year-old all-rounder, who has yet to make his first-team debut for the Red Rose, plundered 34 fours and 27 sixes in his remarkable 138-ball innings - which Lancashire believe is the highest-ever individual score in a one-day match.

“Well done to @liaml4893 who, we think, has smashed a new world record for limited overs cricket, hitting 350 today,” Lancashire posted on their official Twitter feed.

Livingstone’s efforts helped Nantwich to compile 579 for seven from their 45 overs and they earned a staggering 500-run victory when they skittled Caldy for just 79.

Livingstone, who hit 204 in a second XI game against Yorkshire in September, surpasses the previous record of 334 not out scored by Nikhilesh Surendran in Hyderabad in 2008.
