Glenn Maxwell – The Big Show

Glenn Maxwell has represented Australia in every format, without ever becoming the sort of world beater many thought he would be. He enjoyed a spectacular World Cup campaign as Australia won the trophy on home soil in 2015 but has found consistency hard to come by. Shunted in and out of the Test side, especially on tours to the subcontinent where his ability to attack the spinners was valued, he played only 7 matches. There was even a Test hundred in Ranchi (2017), but he played his last game in whites later that year. Such is the impact of his big hitting in the shorter formats of the game that even after playing his last Test four years ago, he is part of Australia’s T20 World Cup team for the 2021 edition of the tournament.

In the shortest format, his ability to improvise and upset bowlers’ rhythm has seen him play some epic knocks. There have been 3 hundreds for Australia, and only India’s Rohit Sharma has scored more. But consistency has been an issue there as well. In the Indian T20 League, which should have been the perfect platform for a man with his talent, he has enjoyed one exceptional season (2014) and one very good one (2017). His other stints, for teams that have broken the bank to get him, have been duds.

Now with the Bangalore team – who already have Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in their ranks – the pressure is slightly off despite the money spent on him at the auction. And so far, Maxwell has played with enough freedom and poise to justify Bangalore’s investment. Bangalore will hope that he carries on to enjoy the kind of season he had with Punjab in 2014, when his brilliant hitting took them all the way to the final.

Adjudged Most Valuable Player that season, Maxwell turns 33 soon. You sense that both he, and a Bangalore team whose heroes aren’t getting younger, will never have a better chance to fill the gap in their trophy cabinets.

Glenn Maxwell - Key Skills and Strengths

Maxwell may have started off as a fast bowler, but it was his innovative shot-making that first brought Maxwell into the limelight. He could play all the orthodox strokes with fluency, but it was the ones that he devised that made him so hard to set a field for. Whether it was the switch-hits, the ramp shots or the various sweeps and slogs, Maxwell at his best simply wouldn’t allow bowlers to settle. His off-spin has fetched him 90 international wickets, and as a fielder, he has often been electric, with catches and stops at the top of highlight reels.

Glenn Maxwell Awards and Achievements

Maxwell has had as many lows as he has had highs while playing for the Australia cricket team. His Test career lasted only 7 Tests, and despite being a vital part of the 2015 World Cup win, he hasn’t always enjoyed the selectors’ faith in ODIs. He has been more consistent in T20Is, but that trophy remains one that continues to elude Australia.

Here are some of Maxwell’s biggest achievements:

  • Maxwell has the second-highest strike rate in ODIs (125.43). Only Andre Russell is ahead of him.

  • Maxwell’s 113* is the highest score by a No.4 batter in T20Is.

  • Only Rohit Sharma (4) has scored more T20I centuries than Maxwell (3).

  • He is one of a select group of players to have opened both batting and bowling in a Test match.

  • During Australia’s 2015 World Cup win, Maxwell made 324 runs off just 178 balls in the tournament. Only Brendon McCullum had a better strike rate for the tournament.

  • Maxwell’s 51-ball century against Sri Lanka in 2015 was the second-fastest century in World Cup history, behind Ireland’s Kevin O’Brien (50 balls).

Glenn Maxwell’s Indian T20 League Journey

Maxwell has been one of the true nomads of the Indian T20 League. Starting out as a replacement for Travis Birt, his fellow Australian, in Delhi, Maxwell was then a $1-million buy for Mumbai. He first dropped anchor properly in Punjab, where he enjoyed a stellar 1st season and a decent 4th one. The two in between are best forgotten. From there, he moved to Delhi, then back to Punjab again. Now he finds himself in Bangalore, with yet another franchise seeking to end a title drought.

Here are some of Maxwell’s biggest achievements in the Indian T20 League:

  • Maxwell’s 552 runs at a stunning strike rate of 187.75 won Maxwell the tournament’s Most Valuable Player award in 2014.

  • Of those with more than 1000 runs in the league, Maxwell has the fifth-best strike rate.

  • He won the Maximum Sixes award twice while with Punjab, striking 36 in 2014 and 26 in 2017.
