Liam Livingstone, who signed professional terms with Lancashire ahead of 2014, has already graduated through to play for the England Lions.
Livingstone, a destructive batsman, played four List A matches against the A sides of Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the summer of 2016, scoring 64 in one.
He was also selected onto their winter programme ahead of the 2017 campaign.
This is all came on the back of a series of impressive displays for Lancashire against the white and red ball in 2016, earning praise from many, including Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale, who described the Cumbrian as one of the brightest talents in the English game.
Livingstone, 23 and from Barrow, won a trophy in his breakthrough season of 2015 - the NatWest T20 Blast.
The right-hander was on the Academy between 2009 and 2011 and on the Scholarship in 2012 and 2013.
His breakthrough innings for Lancashire’s first-team came against Kent in a one-day match at Canterbury in August 2015, hitting a match-winning 93, harnessing power and finesse in the same way Jos Buttler does.
Livingstone, who also bowls useful leg-spin, had trials with Durham as a junior, but he played Under 13s and 15s cricket for the Red Rose. He has also played Minor Counties cricket for Cumberland.
He has also impressed for Lancashire in second-team cricket, with a particularly impressive record against Yorkshire, highlighted by a three-day double century against them in late 2014.
Livingstone scored Championship centuries against Somerset and Warwickshire in 2016, his first season in the side, on the way to a haul of 815 runs.
He equalled Lancashire’s fastest ever T20 fifty against Yorkshire off 21 balls, although that was beaten later in the Blast by Buttler, before hitting in a 50-over 98 against Derbyshire later in the summer.
It all contributed to him being named as Lancashire’s Young Player of the Year for 2016.
Livingstone had initially shot to fame by hitting a record-breaking 350 in a club match for Nantwich in April 2015.
Liam Livingstone has been supported by the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust through the BJMT Elite Spin Bowling.
