All About Glenn Maxwell and His Cricket Career

Born October 14, 1988, Glenn James Maxwell is an Australian senior international cricketer who presently represents Australia in ODI and Twenty20 cricket. He has also represented Australia in Test cricket. Glenn Maxwell is an all-rounder who bats right and bowls off a break. In Australian domestic cricket, he plays for Victoria and the Melbourne Stars.

Glenn Maxwell, one of the quickest scorers in global cricket, has lighted up the limited-overs forms and, at moments, demonstrated that he can convert it to the red ball. Opposing bowlers and leaders are concerned about more than simply his power. His capacity to make unusual shots seem ordinary, such as backward sweeps and pulls, makes it challenging to build fields that cover all of his scoring zones. His daring carries with danger, and he can aggravate and excite, but at his most significant, he can turn a game in seconds.

Australia has also deployed Maxwell in Tests, but endurance at the crease is not one of his skills with less success. However, in 2013, he had the honour of starting the batting and bowling in the identical Test in Delhi, as Australia hunted in vain for anything to salvage their terrible series. He struck his first Test century versus India in Ranchi in 2017; however, he was discarded after the Bangladesh trip. In 2017-18, he scored a career-high 278 for Victoria versus New South Wales in the Sheffield Shield. Still, he could not earn a place in a remodelled Australian Test team following the ball-tampering controversy.
