Experienced Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has completed 100 sixes in T20Is. Regarded as one of the fiercest hitters of the leather, Maxwell achieved this phenomenal feat by executing a fantastic pull off Reece Topley during the ongoing third T20I against England.
Overall, Maxwell became the 12th player to hit 100 sixes in the shortest format. Also, he became only the third Australian batter after Aaron Finch and David Warner to attain this milestone.
List of players with 100 sixes in Men's T20Is
- Rohit Sharma- 178
- Martin Guptill- 173
- Chris Gayle- 124
- Aaron Finch- 120
- Eoin Morgan-120
- Paul Stirling-111
- Evin Lewis-110
- Virat Kohli-109
- Colin Munro-107
- David Warner-105
- Jos Buttler-101
- Glenn Maxwell-100*
However, Maxwell registered yet another failure with the bat. Despite being promoted to open alongside Aaron Finch, the swashbuckling right-hander couldn't capitalise on the chance, falling prey to Chris Woakes for eight in the third over. This was Maxwell's seventh consecutive single-digit score in T20Is. With the T20 World Cup being around the corner, Maxwell's poor form has emerged as a big headache for the Australian think-tank.
Regarding the match, Australia are down on the mat, losing three early wickets. As of writing, the hosts are reeling at 30 for three, needing 100 runs to win in only 49 deliveries.
