About the match
First, let us talk about the match where this six was hit. Perth locked horns with the Adelaide Strikers. The Strikers had batted first and Philip Salt’s half-century helped them post a score of 181 runs in their 20 overs.
Though this target was not that big, the Scorchers failed to chase it down. Livingstone fought like a lone warrior for the Perth-based franchise however, he did not get enough support from his teammates.
The opening batsman played a gritty knock of 79 runs where he struck 1 four and 7 sixes. Perth ended their innings with 165 runs, losing the match by a margin of 16 runs only.
