Maxwell Got Angry On Bowler And Epic Reply To A Bowler Yesterday.

Glenn Maxwell starred for Australia in the 2015 50-overs World Cup as he helped the Aussies to lift the trophy for a record fifth time. The explosive batsman became a batting mainstay and his place was looking well safe in the team. But then he lost his form and performed poorly for a long time. As a result, the selectors dropped him for the One-Day International series against Sri Lanka. However, he roared back to form in style when he was recalled for the T20I series against the Island nation.

Asked to open the innings for the first time in his career, Maxwell hit his maiden T20I ton. He scored 145 off just 65 balls. The stunning innings was studded with 14 fours and 9 sixes. His unbeaten knock was just 11 runs shy of equalling fellow Australian Aaron Finch’s world record of 156 scored against England in 2013. Maxwell’s hundred is the third by an Australian and it’s also the first by a batsman opening for the first time in a T20 International.

The swashbuckling batsman Maxwell reached 50 off 27 deliveries, doing so with trademark flourish by thrashing a massive 90-metre six down the ground. Maxwell passed his previous best of 75 and was given a reprieve one run later when he was caught on the boundary, only for Chamara Kapugedera to touch the boundary with his foot – resulting in fifth six for the batsman. Continuing his astonishing onslaught,Maxwell brought his ton off 49 balls. His incredible innings helped Australia to post 263 runs which is now the highest score in T20I.

Enjoy the incredible innings:
