ABOUT

Glenn Maxwell is also known as ‘The Big Show’, for his big hitting. The Australian batting all-rounder is one of the best when it comes to clean and powerful hitting of the ball to all parts of the ground.

Glenn Maxwell Biography


wp4552904.jpg (1024×768)


Maxwell is really underrated as a 360° player. His reverse sweeps are of the finest quality and he belongs to a rare species of batsmen who can clean any ground in the world. Born on October 1988 in Melbourne, Victoria, the power hitter made his impact in the Australian cricket circle after smashing a 19-ball fifty against Tasmania in the Marsh One-Day Cup in 2011 which was the fastest half-century in Australia’s domestic ODI cricket.

The only thing that stops him from being one of the best cricketers in the world is the lack of consistency. ‘Maxi’, as he likes to call himself, also bowls his off-spinners occasionally and is an exceptional fielder who primarily stands at point.

Glenn Maxwell Career


Glenn Maxwell Domestic career


Maxwell joined the Victorian squad for playing domestic cricket in the year 2009. He then played in the Hong Kong Cricket Sixes tournament in 2010 and was the ‘Player of the Tournament’ in a successful campaign for Australia. He was then selected to play in the 2010 Emerging Players Tournament representing the Australian Institute of Sports.


He became a prominent member of the Victorian side in the limited overs format. He then registered the fastest fifty in the history of the Australian domestic one day tournament, which is now known as the Marsh One-Day Cup. Later, he once again played the 2011 Emerging Players Tournament.


In 2012, he went to England to play club cricket for South Wilts and domestic cricket for Hampshire Second XI. Due to his performances this season, Maxi earned himself a national call-up. In the match against the MCC Young, Maxi struck the bowlers hard and hit 115 runs off 31 deliveries, while playing for the Hampshire Second XI.


In a Shied game, playing against South Australia, Maxwell registered his best bowling figures of 4/42 in first-class cricket.


Glenn Maxwell International career


wp4552913.jpg (1920×1080)


He made his international debut in an ODI against Afghanistan cricket team on 25 August 2012 in the UAE. He played an important innings to save his country from defeat in the second ODI and also registered his maiden international half-century in the next game.


Maxwell made his T20I debut on the same tour against Pakistan on 5 September 2012. He was soon picked to play for Australia in the 2012 ICC World Twenty20.


He was picked on the tour to India where he made his Test debut on 2 March 2013. He could not stand upto his expectations and thus did not receive many more opportunities in the longest format.


In 2013, he was picked to play in the ICC Champions Trophy. He scored 61 runs in a couple of games before Australia were knocked out in the early stages of the tournament.


Sheffield Shield - VIC v SA: Day 2


After a brilliant performance in the 2014 edition of the IPL, he was in the squad for the 2014 ICC World Twenty20. He scored 147 runs at a whopping strike rate of 210 and was picked in the ‘Team of the Tournament’ by ICC.


He then had another stint in the English domestic competitions and made a return to Test cricket in the UAE. He once again failed to perform well. However, because of his performances in limited-overs cricket, he was picked to play the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. In this tournament, he registered the fastest century by an Australian in ODIs and second-fastest century in World Cup cricket. With this performance, he entered into the Top 10 of the ICC ODI Batsmen Rankings. Australia won the tournament eventually in home conditions and Glenn was named in the ‘Team of the Tournament’ by ICC. In the same year, Cricket Australia presented him the Allan Border medal for the Men's T20I Player of the Year.


In 2016, he opened the T20I innings for the first time against Sri Lanka and scored a hundred; becoming the first batsman in T20I cricket to do so. He slammed 145* off 65 balls, which was the second highest individual score then. Due to this innings, the Aussies posted 263/6, the highest team total in T20Is. His wonderful 2016 continued when he won another Allan Border Medal, this time for being the Men's ODI Player of the Year.


In 2017, Maxwell scored his first Test century against India in India, thus becoming only the second Australian (after Shane Watson) and thirteenth cricketer overall to score an international century in all three formats. He played just game in the ICC Champions Trophy later in the year.


Maxwell had a difficult outing in the ODI series against India in September 2017. Although he emerged as the top scorer for the Aussies in the first ODI with 39 runs, Maxi failed in the next two ODIs. As a result, he was dropped from the team for the next matches and Australia faced a series defeat, 4-1.


In the 2017-18 Ashes, Maxwell was excluded for the first Test as Shaun Marsh was preferred over him. Although he was called up for the match accounting to both Marsh and Warner suffering from injuries, he ultimately did not play the Test


He was then overlooked for a place in the ODIs in England and captain Steve Smith’s words for Maxwell in a press conference did not go down well with his parents as they were pretty upset with the incident. After a great BBL 2017/18, he was then picked to play against New Zealand and England in 2018. He scored a century in this series and became the only Australian to score more than one T20I hundreds.


In 2019, Maxwell was awarded the Men's T20I Player of the Year at the Allan Border Medal Ceremony by Cricket Australia. In the 2019 T20 series against India, Maxwell went out and showed the game he's known for. After a fifty in the first encounter, Maxi hit 113* in the next game and became the first Australian player to score 3 tons in T20Is and the third cricketer overall. He ended up winning the player of the match as well as the player of the series award for scoring 169 runs in 2 innings.


In the 2019 World Cup held in England and Wales, Maxwell had a disappointing run as he scored just 176 runs in 10 matches.


Two years later, the T20 World Cup returned after 5 years in 2021 and the big show was expected to go big but he failed big time! He scored only 68 runs in the 5 games, with only a single 30+ score under his belt.


This year hasn't been great either for the Australian hard-hitter. He has scored close to 200 runs in the 15 T20Is at an average of just 15. While he has scored close to 300 runs at an average of 30 in the ODI format with just a single fifty to his name.


Maxwell has been included in the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup in Australia and this will be an opportunity for Maxwell to unleash his true colors and prove his worth in the international circle.


Glenn Maxwell IPL and BBL career


wp4552917.jpg (1393×767)


Maxwell got signed by the Melbourne Renegades to play in the inaugural edition of the Big Bash League in 2011/12. He played six innings and scored 124 runs for them before getting injured and missing the rest of the tournament.


He also got his first IPL contract when Delhi Daredevils (now known as Delhi Capitals) brought him as a replacement in the 2012 IPL season. In the same year, he even played the now defunct Champions League Twenty20 for Hampshire.


In the 2012/13 BBL, he joined the Melbourne Stars. He scored 145 runs including a fifty and took 1 wicket in 7 matches in the season.


Maxwell became the most expensive player in the 2013 IPL auctions when the eventual champions Mumbai Indians bought him for $1 million US (INR 53,685,500). Although, he played just 3 matches for them and scored 36 runs. Therefore, they did not retain the Australian for the next edition.


He then moved to Kings XI Punjab after being bought by them for INR 6 crores. It worked wonders for the side as he became their highest run-getter in the tournament and also the third-highest overall. He amassed 552 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 136 including 5 fifties. He also picked a wicket in the tournament.


In the 2014/15 BBL season, Maxi scored 118 runs including a fifty and picked up 2 wickets in 6 matches for the Renegades.


In IPL 2015, he looked a pale shadow of the 2014 IPL Maxwell, as he could manage only 145 runs in 11 matches and picked up only 2 wickets.


Two years later, in 2017, he took over the captaincy of Kings XI. With responsibility, he performed better as he scored 310 runs in 14 games at a strike rate of 173 and also picked 7 wickets for the team. Although, he missed out on scoring in a lot of games.


In the 2017/18 edition of the BBL, he had a point to prove to the Australian team management who had not picked him for the ODIs in England. He registered excellent numbers for the Men in Red as he scored 299 runs in 9 games at an average of 37 and a strike rate of 154. It earned him a place in the next series for Australia.


Maxi shifted base back to the Delhi franchise in IPL 2018. He scored 169 runs at a strike rate of 140 and took 5 wickets in 12 matches as they finished at the bottom of the points table.


To focus on the World Cup, Maxwell opted out of the 2019 edition of the IPL. He was bought by KXIP, now known as Punjab Kings for a staggering 10.75 crores next season. The buy did not end up well for the franchise as Maxwell failed miserably and only scored 108 runs in 13 games without hitting a single six.


Royal Challengers Bangalore signed Maxwell for a huge 14.25 crore rupees in the 2021 auction and boy, he didn’t disappoint the red team. With a strike rate of 144, Maxi scored 513 runs within 15 matches and was a key player in RCB’s success in the season. Next year in the mega auction, Maxwell was retained for 11 crore rupees by the franchise and was expected to again show the previous year like magic. But Maxwell wasn’t at his best in the 2022 season, scoring 301 runs in 13 games with just a single half-century to his name.


Maxwell got signed by the Melbourne Renegades to play in the inaugural edition of the Big Bash League in 2011/12. He played six innings and scored 124 runs for them before getting injured and missing the rest of the tournament.


In the 2012/13 BBL, he joined the Melbourne Stars. He scored 145 runs including a fifty and took 1 wicket in 7 matches in the season. In the 2014/15 BBL season, Maxi scored 118 runs including a fifty, and picked up 2 wickets in 6 matches for the Renegades.


In the 2017/18 edition of the BBL, he had a point to prove to the Australian team management who had not picked him for the ODIs in England. He registered excellent numbers for the Men in Green as he scored 299 runs in 9 games at an average of 37 and a strike rate of 154. It earned him a place in the next series for Australia.


In the previous four seasons, the big hitter from Victoria has shown great consistency, scoring 300+ runs every year. He ended the BBL 11 with 468 runs with a monstrous strike rate of 159.73! Maxi also broke the record of the highest individual score by a batsman in BBL by hitting 154* off 64 balls last season. Maxwell has evolved a lot since then, and currently captains the Melbourne Stars in the BBL.
