Glenn Maxwell looked in destructive touch during the first T20I of the three-match series against Sri Lanka on Sunday.
Maxwell smashed a quickfire 62 runs off just 28 balls to help Australia register a thumping 134-run win. He played some brilliant shots in his brief cameo, which was laced with seven fours and three sixes.
The explosive right-hander also pulled off an outrageous shot in his innings to send a Nuwan Pradeep delivery for a boundary. Commentators and fans were left stunned after watching Maxi’s brilliance.

After being put in to bat first, Australia got off to a dream start with openers Aaron Finch and David Warner, adding a brilliant 122-run partnership for the first wicket. Warner notched up his maiden T20I century en-route to his sublime knock of 100 runs off 56 balls. Meanwhile, Finch also looked in elegant touch as he scored 64 off 36 balls.
After Finch’s dismissal, Warner added a 107-run stand for the second wicket with Maxwell. With the help of Warner’s hundred and half-centuries from Finch and Maxwell, Australia posted a mammoth total of 233/2 on the board.
