One of the cleanest strikers of the cricketing ball, Australia’s Glenn Maxwell is in sublime form recently, as he struck another immaculate fifty against New Zealand XI in a practice match. A career strike rate in excess of 120, Maxwell’s extravagant batting display is a great sign for the Aussies ahead of the World Cup.
The 30-year-old has accumulated 5 fifties in each of his last 5 games, including the two practice matches against the touring Kiwis, indicating a sudden surge in his power hitting form. Bringing out extremely innovative shots with great effect, Maxwell’s stunning charge in limited overs cricket spells out a grave warning for all the other sides in the upcoming mega tournament in England and Wales.
He could potentially be Australia’s main weapon and the enforcer in chief for the World Cup. Part of the Kangaroos’ World Cup winning team back in 2015, Maxwell has only improved in quality since then.
