In typical fashion, Glenn Maxwell put on a masterclass in the field during Australia’s clash against South Africa in the one-off T20I match series.
After a quick-fire 27 from 15 balls, Faf du Plessis looked to have cleared the rope over cow corner but a brilliant piece of fielding sent him on his way.
Maxwell jumped up, caught the ball, threw it back inside the boundary before hitting the ground and then completed the catch inside the rope.
Despite the wicket, South Africa managed to put 109 runs on the board at the end of 10 overs in the rain-shortened game. In reply to massive score, it was only Maxwell who showed promise in the attack. His 38 runs off 23 balls laced with two fours and two sixes were the top score among the Aussies, but the team succumbed to a 21-run defeat.
Here’s the video of Glenn Maxwell’s stunning catch:
Are you kidding, @GMaxi_32?? A FREAKISH CATCH!
