Australian-born Glenn James Maxwell plays professional cricket. He was born on October 14, 1988. Despite being a specialist in One Day International and Twenty20 International cricket, he has represented Australia in all forms of the game since 2012. Maxwell is an all-around player who bowls off-break deliveries and bats right-handed. He played for the Melbourne Stars and Victoria in his own country. He competed for Australia in the cricket world cups of 2015, 2023 (ICC Cricket World Cup), and 2021 (T20 World Cup). It is challenging to lay fields to protect all of his scoring areas because of his propensity to make unorthodox shots like reverse sweeps and pulls.
Early Life And Career
2010 saw Maxwell make his professional debut. Known for his flamboyant shot-making and inventiveness in the game's shorter formats, he broke the record in 2011 by getting 50 runs in 19 balls, making it the quickest half-century in Australian domestic one-day cricket history. Maxwell is one of just 13 cricket players to have scored hundreds in all three international cricket forms. He has played Twenty20 cricket in both India and England. He achieved his first double-century in November 2017 when he scored 278 in the Sheffield Shield. In October 2023, he broke the record for the quickest century ever recorded in a Cricket World Cup when he scored his century in 40 balls against the Netherlands. He also became only the third individual to get the fastest double century in a World Cup, setting a new record in November 2023. In the 2023 Cricket World Cup final, he struck the winning runs against India and made history as the first male batsman to make a double century for Australia in One-Day Internationals. He matched Rohit Sharma's global record for most T20I century scores in the same month that the global Cup ended when he hammered his fourth career T20I century against India. In men's T20Is, he also made history by being the first batter to reach three hundred while chasing. In his 100th T20I match, he also made history by being the first and only batsman to reach a century.
Personal Life
In March 2022, Maxwell tied the knot with his longtime partner, Vini Raman. In September 2023, a boy was born to the couple.
