The pressure on Livingstone was to start with a bang Thursday night, especially with fellow English compatriot and opener Jason Roy who had a forced omission due to an ankle injury

The right-hander hit 77 of 39 deliveries after reaching his half century in just 27 balls

“It’s time I did a few runs for the guys. I did a little research this morning to see what I did really well last year,” Livingstone told Seven Network

“I was trying to see what I did well last year I didn’t go out with too much confidence, which is not the best dough so I tried to redefine my memory and build a bit of confidence”

Mitchell Swepson, whose numbers from 1 to 26 made him by far the most thrifty bowler of the Heat, finished Livingstone’s entertaining punch in Dec. Game

But Brisbane’s hopes to capitalize on the momentum were ended by an undefeated 75-year partnership between Mitch Marsh (49 not eliminated) and Cameron Bancroft (58 not eliminated) who boosted 33 runs into the rush

Marsh was promoted for the first time in Perth’s redesigned batting order, while Bancroft was promoted for his first BBL game since Aug. January was recalled

Test batsman Marnus Labuschagne, whose leg vertebrae was an integral part of the two previous heat elimination victories, has overcome the brunt of Livingstone’s attack
