Glenn Maxwell, the Australia all-rounder has been in a great form, scoring 62 off just 28 balls in the first Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday. His blistering knock included seven fours and three hits over the fence. Maxwell brought up his half-century in mere 22 balls when he smashed a big six off a full-toss. On the very next ball, he emulated MS Dhoni’s famous helicopter shot to hit another six.
While sharing the video of the shot on Twitter, Cricket Australia wrote: “Maxwell brings out the helicopter! Consecutive sixes for the Australia’s No.3!”.
