Chasing a target of 175, Livingston came along with captain Josh Ingles to open the innings for the Scorchers. The duo almost took the game away from the Renegades with a partnership of 102 runs for the first wicket. Livingstone scored 59 off 39 balls before eventually getting dismissed to Gleeson. Cameron Bancroft later ensured the Scorcher’s victory.

Livingstone was named the man of the match for his performance and he hoped to keep up his good performances. “We needed this. We have been playing some good cricket but just weren’t able to get over the line. Hopefully, we’ll keep this momentum through the tournament. My leg-side play is my strength but I am trying to work on my game. Our next game is a big game; we played well against them the last time. Hopefully we can keep playing well and take the momentum going forward,” Livingstone said after being awarded the Man of the Match.
