Glenn Maxwell Profile

A right-handed batsman and right arm off-break bowler, Glenn Maxwell plays for Victoria in Australia's domestic cricket. He represents Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League.

Maxwell's aggressive batting style at any position from an opener to the No.7 slot, handy off-spin bowling and delightful fielding puts him into a mould of a perfect all-rounder. He is also great at judging slower balls and most commonly uses his ‘swivel slog sweep’ to send the ball deep into the stands. The all-rounder shot to fame in 2011 when he scored a record 19-ball half century to lead Victoria to an unlikely victory against Tasmania. But it was his knock of 110 off 52 balls with nine fours and eight sixes for Australian Institute of Sports in the Emerging Player tournament that caught the eyes of Delhi selectors, who signed him for the fifth Indian T20 League edition in 2012.

Later that year, Maxwell went on to make his international debut for Australia in a one-off ODI against Afghanistan at Sharjah. In 2013, the Aussie was a surprise pick in the Indian T20 League player auction by Mumbai, who bought him at a whopping million dollars, making him the league's newest million dollar baby. However, he warmed the bench for most parts of the season and played a few games at the end of the tournament. Maxwell did not make it to the same franchise the very next year when he was sold to Mohali.

In 2015, Australia won the World Cup and Maxwell was one of their main players of the tournament as he amassed 324 runs in 8 matches at a whopping strike rate of 182.02. However, within a year his fortunes changed when he was dropped from the ODI squad for the Sri Lanka tour owing to inconsistency. But the Big Show responded with a 65 ball-145 run knock in the first T20I of the same series.

Given his record in the sub-continent, Glenn Maxwell was also drafted in the Australian squad for the Test series against India in 2017. He repaid the selectors' faith with his maiden Test century in the third match of the tour. Maxwell couldn't have asked for a better start to the year as he was also named the captain of Mohali in the 2017 Indian T20 League.
