Glenn Maxwell - Mr. Innovation

Glenn Maxwell is a maverick in the word’s truest meaning. His unorthodox batting style makes him a nightmare for opponents to deal with. Whatever a bowler might try to do, Maxi finds a way to send the ball over the ropes. He initially gained a reputation for his explosive batting style as he scored the fastest half-century in ODIs in the Ryobi Cup. Originally quite traditional in his batting style, as he gained confidence on the international stage, he became free and let his imagination run wild. Maxwell’s ability to pull off shots never seen before makes him one that spectators around the world love watching.

International Career:

In October 2019, he announced that he will be taking a break from cricket to deal with mental health issues. Maxwell recently made his highly anticipated return in the tour of South Africa. Back to his best again, he is second to none with a bat in his hand.
