    Liam Livingstone called up to the England test squad

    Not being a die-hard county cricket viewer I havenít seen him in the flesh. Just wondering what views people have, 24 years old Lancashire batsman, decent lions tour, numbers look good at 1st class level (averaging best part of 49). Who's place is under threat here? Vince for my money if he can bat 3, or move Malan up and bat him at 5?

    I was reading an interview with him today and he is keen to stress that he is actually more a red ball specialist than a white ball. People seem to have gained this conception of him as a white ball specialist.

    Probably comes from him smashing 350 in a one day game. Those sort of scores will give you a reputation as a bit good

    Such an English sounding name cannot belong to a good cricketer. He needs to have a South African or Kiwi sounding name to play for the English cricket team and be any good. Amateur hour by the selectors.

    Now I understand why I've always struggled to hit the ball off the square

    Should have been in the ashes squad. Don't think he is a number 3 though but Vince has to be dropped to make way for him. Whether they move Malan to 3 or shuffle Root up is open for debate but Livingstone has to play in my view.

    There are problems with all the options but I like Malan at 5, think Root at 3 would probably be the way to go.

    it made news at the time Liam Livingstone scores 350 for Nantwich in 500-run cup win - BBC Sport

    It was certainly the first time I had heard of him.

    They lost a one day game by 500 runs? Good effort.
