2. Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell’s career is like an elevated railway. Even though he is potentially one of the finest cricketers going around in the fraternity, his inability to perform consistently has often landed himself in trouble.
The 31-year-old has very little control on his gameplay and his mentality to simply hoick the ball on most of the occasions hasn’t earned him a lot of success. Nonetheless, this style of playing has somewhat made him successful in the shortest format of the game as it is mostly about clearing the fence.
Consequently, Maxwell has fine records in T20Is. Even this year, he has albeit played only two T20I games but averages 169 and has struck a century as well. The OZ side will next lock horns with the Sri Lankan team, and Maxi, who is currently the 2nd-ranked T20I batsman in world cricket, is very much likely to remove Babar Azam from the first spot and take it up himself.
