Liam Livingstone says playing T20 cricket in different countries is helping cricketers with their game.
The 26-year-old Englishman just landed in South Africa where he will represent Cape Town Blitz in this year’s Mzansi Super League.
A replacement for fellow Englishman David Malan, Livingstone says: “These experiences around the world are great for us.
“It helps us playing in different conditions, so hopefully when I leave here in six weeks’ time I can be a better player.”
Coaching him in the Mother City is a former Lancashire teammate in Ashwell Prince. The pair won the T20 Blast together in 2015.
Livingstone recalls: “We have some great memories of that night.
“Obviously seeing Ashwell again brings back those memories. Hopefully we can do the same again this year.
“I think Ashwell’s last year at Lancashire was my first year, so coming through at Lancashire, Ashwell was someone I would have looked up to.
“A lot of our young lads tried to model ourselves on Ashwell.
“It is great to be back with him and hopefully he can pass on some knowledge again.”
After May's World Cup triumph, Livingstone is keen to learn from the best around the world in an effort to make the England team.
With Proteas legend Hashim Amla a batting consultant for Blitz and Quinton de Kock leading the team, Livingstone who played two T20s for his country, says: “I think if you look at cricket now in England it is almost seen as less boring than it was at the start of the year.
“I think it shows the young boys trying to get into that team how hard it is.
"It encourages us to work as hard as we can.”
Livingstone is expected to make his Blitz debut against the defending champions Jozi Stars Friday evening at the Wanderers (5.30pm).
