Glenn Maxwell’s ability to blend athleticism and instincts has proved to be a game-changer in the modern limited-overs game series. He has proved time and again his mettle on the ground. He is called Big Show as he pulls off all the shots with ease and gusto. For some audio and text commentators, their job becomes difficult as he strikes some indescribable shots that cannot be always expressed in words. His unorthodox and unconventional gameplay has taken his fans and the cricketing community by surprise and intrigue.
Even though he is known for being unorthodox on the field, his claim to fame was a conventional journey whereas a 22-year-old rookie player, he traded his way through the fastest fifty in the history of domestic One-day in Ryobi cup. He continued with his outstanding performance and had shaken the African and Indian sides to the core as he scored 59-23 for India and 110-52 for South Africa.
He continued with his impressive stride in ODI and T20I debut with his sheer consistency. His outstanding all-round performance scored him a 56 against Pakistan in his second ODI. But despite all this, the spotlight did not shine on him as he could not establish his dominant position. But thanks to his past records and performances and in domestic and international cricket, he was selected for the 2012 World T20 in Sri Lanka.
Although Maxwell continued putting up an impressive show in the limited-overs format, he could not prove that same kind of prowess and talent with his bat. Which is one of the reasons why he was dropped out of the test match in Mohali. He was presented with another opportunity in the final test in Delhi. Here also he could not prove his skills with his bat and eventually was dropped.
The Big Show became the talk of the town as he signed a $1 million contract with Mumbai Indians. In 2014, he shifted to Kings XI Punjab and struck a record of securing seven fifties in the tournament. He soon rose to the ranks of the powerful players and became a fierce competition for other captains as beyond the boundary, the man was hitting one after the another that went beyond the rope.
His selection in the 2015 World Cup instilled in him a new sense of confidence and determination as he responded in the field by scoring 324 runs on an average of 64.8 and establishing an unprecedented strike-rate at 182. His incredible record of 145 off 65 balls against Sri Lanka in T20I is the second-highest score that no one has yet to beat in the history of T20I
Maxwell established an impressive streak in the 2015 World Cup where he regained Australia’s title glory. His record-breaking century including three fifty-plus scores in a total of six innings makes him one of the influential players of all time. His all-roundness puts him on top of the charts and an enviable asset that cannot be traded off very easily. But he has had a lot of ups and downs in his international career as his mental health issues started taking shape. However, he gained form and confidence in the World Cup that has given a good chance for Australia to go deep. In the midst of all this, his affair with an Indian girl started taking up space for mainstream gossip. Let us also explore the much clandestine love story between these two lovebirds.
