#1 Maxwell marvel
In the final games of the Indian Premier League, it seems as though the real Glenn Maxwell has turned up for the Kings XI Punjab. In the last few games, we have witnessed some insane hitting from the Australian – and tonight was no different.
Against the Mumbai Indians, the Australian batsman promoted himself to number 3 and smashed 47 runs off only 21 balls. His innings comprised 5 sixes and 2 boundaries as his power packed performance helped Punjab cross the 200 mark.
