Star Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell recently posted a tweet where he took credit for Mujeeb Ur Rahman's reverse sweep off Rashid Khan's bowling.
Glenn Maxwell and Mujeeb Ur Rahman were part of the Kings XI Punjab franchise in IPL 2020. The former had a disastrous IPL campaign, managing to score only 108 runs.
Maxwell's reaction came to this shot of Mujeeb [Watch below] in the BBL's latest encounter between Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman played the shot to good effect a couple of times in the same over. His heroics went a long way in helping the Brisbane Heat come back into the contest, which they eventually lost by two runs.
However, Glenn Maxwell didn't miss the opportunity to talk about his KXIP teammate's batting. Taking to Twitter, Maxwell wrote:
" I didn't do much this last IPL, but I'm pretty sure I taught Mujeeb how to play that reverse sweep #yourewelcomeheat"
Mujeeb ended up getting 18 off 10 balls before he was dismissed off Peter Siddle's bowling. Heat skipper Jimmy Pierson played a blinder, scoring 69* off 36 balls, but his efforts eventually fell in vain.
