Glenn Maxwell smashes record 154 runs at BBL!
CRICDOT DESK : The cricket world has seen again how terrible Glenn Maxwell can be with the bat. Melbourne Stars captain Maxi hit a four-six against the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash on Wednesday. He played an unbeaten 154-run innings off just 64 balls.
This is the highest individual innings in the history of the Big Bash. Maxwell hit 22 fours and 4 sixes in this innings. Melbourne made 263 runs for 2 wickets in 20 overs with his great batting. This is the highest team score in the history of the Big Bash. Earlier, the Sydney Thunders’ 232-E was the highest team collection.
Marcus Stoinnis did not go less on the day of Maxwell-Storm. He was unbeaten on 75 off 31 balls. Besides, Joe Clarke has scored 35 runs from 18 balls. Nepal’s star spinner Sandeep Lamichane has given 52 runs in 4 overs for Hobart. Josh Kan gave 40 runs in 2 overs.
Right-handed Maxwell scored 21 wins in Darcy Shorts and achieved five limits in another 22 runs of Sandeep Lamichane. Not only Maxwell, but also WA’s Marcus Stoinnis finished undefeated with 31 to 75 balls.
BBL On the same night when he lost the record for the highest score in history, Stoinis did not forgive the hurricane. The hurricane bowler wasn’t less than 10 runs at an economical speed, so he launched six balls with a top rope and robbed Tim David of 26.
After the Hurricane’s defeated the Melbourne rebels on Tuesday, the Stars quit the finals, causing a knock and finishing sixth. It’s after the club was forced to play two games without a majority of the team when he wasn’t available on COVID 19. Hobert will face Adelaide as an eliminator on Friday, regardless of the outcome of the MCG, but could be severely psychologically hit after the star batter attacks.
The final will also take place in Melbourne’s Neutral Zone after Australian Cricket confirms that the first week of the final will take place in the Victorian capital. Next week’s interim finals and finalists will be able to play on the home pitch. Top-ranked Scorcher will use Marvel Stadium while locked out of Western Australia.
