Glenn Maxwell is enjoying the blistering form in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL). His recent outing in the exciting league against Brisbane Heat grabbed maximum eyeballs.
The Melbourne Stars’ skipper played an explosive inning of 45-ball 83* to register a comprehensive victory against Heat.
Recently, Maxwell became Stars’ all-time, leading run-scorer in the BBL.

In the current season, Maxwell has scored 311 runs and holds the second spot in the leading run-scorers after Marcus Stoinis (331).
On Friday, Maxwell smashed seven sixes and a boundary in his unbeaten 83-run knock. Some of his sixes went way so far that it attracted the attention of many, which includes New Zealand’s all-rounder James Neesham. Neesham reacted at one of Maxwell’s huge six in his own style.
Responding to a tweet of BBL’s official Twitter handle, Neesham asked Maxwell that if the ball clears the rope, it’s still a six, no need to hit it too far into the stands.
“You know it’s still 6 if it just creeps over the rope, right @Gmaxi_32 ??? No need to hit them 26 rows back,” tweeted Neesham.
