Liam Livingstone played a match-winning innings of unbeaten 95 as England secured a convincing 79-run victory over New Zealand in the second one-day international in Southampton. Here are the key highlights:

  1. Rain-Delayed Match: The match was reduced to 34 overs per side due to rain. England, who won the toss, struggled at 8-3 initially.
  2. Livingstone’s Heroics: Liam Livingstone’s career-best ODI innings of 95 not out helped England recover from a precarious position of 55-5. He showcased both composure and power hitting.
  3. Partnership with Curran: Sam Curran (42) provided excellent support to Livingstone with a crucial sixth-wicket partnership of 112 runs in 77 balls.
  4. Bowling Performance: Reece Topley (3-27) and David Willey (3-34) starred with the ball for England. New Zealand’s Trent Boult took the first three wickets for the visitors.
  5. Series Levelled: England’s victory in this match leveled the four-match series at 1-1 after New Zealand’s win in the first ODI.

Liam Livingstone’s outstanding performance enhanced his prospects of selection for England’s final 15-man World Cup squad.

The series will continue at the Oval on Wednesday, and both teams will look to gain an advantage as the competition progresses.
