Australia’s Glenn Maxwell took an absolute stunner in the Leeds ODI against England to get rid of Liam Plunkett when he was on 17. His incredible effort at the boundary line almost sealed the series for the Aussies. England, however, held their nerves to win a thrilling contest by three wickets to level the series, 2-2.
The series decider will be played at Old trafford on the 13th of September. But Maxi’s catch has the Twitter world talking.
Here are the best tweets!

Glenn Maxwell man of the match for me. Two of the best catches you'll see to go with his knock. But another super effort by Morgan.

Glenn Maxwell is the kind of cricketer we should love but we just can't forgive him for being Australian. https://t.co/pkD5NDUZe2

Omg, Maxwell's catch is the best outfield catch I've ever seen! Unbelievable coordination, spacial awareness and skill.

Glenn Maxwell now holds the world record for least celebration for most astounding catch. Broke his own record for the Morgan catch earlier

WICKET! Unbelievable from Maxwell who catches Plunkett, tosses it back in play as he steps over the rope, hops back over to take the catch.
