BBL Exhibition Match
Glenn Maxwell turns out for the Melbourne Stars

Twenty20 leagues all over the world are known for the stars who play for the different teams and that is a genuine attraction for viewers all over the world.

However, at the same time, T20 leagues are also the breeding grounds for up and coming cricketers from all over the world. It is one of the biggest attractions of the T20 leagues and over the years, the Big Bash League in Australia has seen plenty of outstanding players turning out for the different teams. Every year there are certain players for whom the viewers watch out for ahead of the tournament and the 2017-18 season is no different.

The reasons might range from the excitement to watch a superb talent, while on the other hand, people might also want to see how established stars perform, with one eye on their international careers. So, here are the 5 players to watch out for in 2017-18 version of the BBL.

5 Glenn Maxwell- Melbourne Stars

There is absolutely no doubt that Glenn Maxwell is one of the most famous and well-regarded cricketers in the world, due to his distinct style of batting. It has made him one of the most dangerous batsmen in cricket, but at the same time his refusal to tame his style has also come in for criticism and earlier this year, he was actually dropped from the Australian one-day side during their tour of India for playing irresponsible shots.

However, Maxwell has scored plenty of runs in Australian domestic cricket and would like to stamp his authority on the BBL when he turns out for the Melbourne Stars in 2017-18. In fact, it has been stated that he was unlucky to miss out on the Ashes squad.

Maxwell is one player who is definitely one to watch out for this season, since one could see a player who might be far more dangerous now that he has curbed some of his instincts.
