Watch: Maxwell sends it out of the stadium in back to back balls in BBL
Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell hit back to back balls out of the stadium in a league match in ongoing Big Bash League in Australia.
Australian cricket summer is highly engaging day by day with a lot of crickets. On the one side, Australia are playing the historic Border-Gavaskar trophy against India while on the other side, Cricket Australia’s grand T20 league Big Bash League is started.
Big Bash League is currently going through its league phases. In the 7th match of the league, Hobart Hurricanes met Melbourne Stars in Hobart. Hobart Hurricanes won the bat flip and asked the opposition to bat first.
After being put into bat first, Melbourne Stars managed to score only 155 runs in their quota of overs. Glenn Maxwell topped the batting chart as he scored a blistering 47 runs from 31 balls. Jofra Archer was the pick of the bowler for Hobart with three wickets.
Hobart Hurricanes chased the target comfortably with the help of the half-century from Mathew Wade. In the end, Hobart Hurricanes won the match by six wickets.
Even though Glenn Maxwell ended in the losing side, he was never short of the entertainment in the match. The Aussie all-rounder scored 47 runs from 31 balls and his knock had 5 sixes.
Among those five, he sent two of them for out of the stadium and too to the same location. It was the 13th over of the innings. Clive Rose was the bowler. Maxwell sent the third ball of the over out of the stadium in the cover region.
As the ball was missed umpires brought another ball into the game. In the very next ball, Maxi sent it to the same region and that ball was also lost.
A couple of balls lost in consecutive deliveries. In the same spot. With two wildly different shots.
