London, Apr 20: In a record breaking innings, a 21-year-old batsman from Lancashire's Nantwich Cricket Club scripted history in the game of cricket by smashing 350 in 138 balls in a club match, on Sunday.

Liam Livingstone smashed a stupendous triple ton in the One Day game played during National Club Championship clash against Caldy Cricket Club.

Livingstone's astonishing assault comprised 34 fours and 27 sixes.

With the help of Liam's record breaking innings Nantwich's XI posted a mammoth 579 for seven in just 45 overs.

"Had worse days! Thanks for all the messages," Livingstone said on Twitter.

It is believed to be the the highest recorded individual in any form of one-day match, surpassing the unbeaten 334 by India's Nikhilesh Surendran (15 years) in 2008, during a school fixture in Hyderabad.

In response to Natwich's 579, opposition Caldy collapsed to 79 all out as Nantwich won by record margin of 500 runs.

The 290 run partnership between Liam Livingstone and Ben Johnson is also the highest clubs history.

Livingstone was used as a substitute fielder by England in last year's third Test match against India in Manchester after Stuart Broad was struck in the face while batting.
