Glen Maxwell

Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell did wonders while playing for Victoria during the 14th game of the ongoing Marsh Cup between Western Australia and Victoria in Perth. His splendid fielding efforts at the boundaryleft everyone amazed.

Considered as an amazing fielder, Glenn Maxwell proved the same when he gave full-length dive to stop the ball from the boundary following Western Australia captain Ashton Turner hit to the deep mid-wicket region off Matthew Short. However, stopping the ball wasn’t enough for the all-rounder as Xavier Crone came and pick the ball. He later threw it to the bowler. After the following over which was bowled by Will Sutherland, Glenn Maxwell rushed from deep square leg to show a brilliant show and threw at the striker’s end as well.

Although his stunning throw didn’t hit the stumps, it hit thefoot of the Victoria opening batsman Will Pucovski. Thankfully the batsman didn’t face any major injury.

After having won the toss, Turner elected to bat first and the hosts put up a decent total of 281/9 in their allotted 42 overs. While coming to bat at No. 4 in the sixth over, Cameron Bancroft played a brilliant knock of 76 off 70 for Western Australia which included four fours and two sixes.

Short was the pick of the bowlers with the bowling figures of 6-0-32-2. However, Sutherland and Crone also did well with the ball. Glenn Maxwell, who bowled four over while conceding mere 28 runs, dismissed Western Australia fast bowler Andrew Tye for mere 9 in the penultimate over of their innings.
