England star Liam Livingstone has been credited with hitting "the biggest six of all time" during his side's T20 victory over Pakistan at Headingley.

Livingstone scored the quickest century by an Englishman in T20 internationals in the first game of the three-match series at Trent Bridge on Friday, but it wasn't enough as the hosts failed to chase down Pakistan's monster 232-6.

He managed only 38 before being run out after a mix-up with Tom Curran in the second game, but England's 200 all out proved plenty as the tourists managed just 155-9 in reply to leave the series level at 1-1.

But Livingstone's brisk, 23-ball innings included a towering six over the stand and into the adjacent rugby stadium, which stunned Sky Sports commentators Ian Ward and Kumar Sangakkara.

"Oh my goodness," said Ward. "Where has that ended up? That's massive. That is enormous."

"Where did it go? I didn't see it!" replied Sangakkara.

Ward added: "Sanga, it's gone over the stand. That's on the rugby pitch. I don't think I've ever seen a six bigger than that."

After the huge blow, England's official account tweeted: "Biggest six ever?! @LeedsRhinos, can we have our ball back?"

The Rhinos cheekily replied: "Good job for Liam Livingstone that back garden cricket rules are not in play, as everyone knows if you hit it over the neighbours fence it’s six and OUT!

"We’ll leave the side gate open, he can pop round and get it."

The two sides now move on to Old Trafford for the series decider on Tuesday night.
