Kulasekara to Maxwell, 1 wide, way down the leg side


Kulasekara to Maxwell, 1 run, pushed towards cover for a single, the much-hyped Maxwell is off the mark

Australia 11/1   GJ Maxwell 1* (1b)

Eranga to Maxwell, no run, back of a length ball from Eranga, 137kph, just outside off, Maxwell fishes for it outside off and is beaten


Eranga to Maxwell, 2 runs, full and on the pads, lofted over mid-on and there's a long chase for Malinga, only two runs result though, should have pushed for three there


Eranga to Maxwell, no run, Eranga gets the ball to sway away a touch outside off, Maxwell hangs his bat outside off and is beaten once more


Eranga to Maxwell, 1 leg bye, length ball on the pads, huge appeal for lbw but that looked to be sliding down leg, the ball dribbles in front of square leg

Australia 14/1   GJ Maxwell 3* (5b)

Kulasekara to Maxwell, no run, great line just outside off, Maxwell pokes at it and is beaten once more


Kulasekara to Maxwell, FOUR, the Big Show gets going with a lofted drive over extra cover, it was a full ball and that is launched for a boundary


Kulasekara to Maxwell, SIX, beautiful shot from Maxwell, a length ball and Maxwell takes a pace out of the crease and lifts that over the bowler's head, minimal effort, lovely swing of the bat, and the ball sails over the rope towards the sightscreen


Kulasekara to Maxwell, 4 leg byes, terrific come back from Kulasekara, Maxwell was backing away, Kula follows him and that ricochets of his body, between the keeper and slip for four leg byes


Kulasekara to Maxwell, no run, slants this in towards the pads, strikes the pads as well, an lbw appeal but that was sliding down


Kulasekara to Maxwell, no run, shorter from Kulasekara, Maxwell skates down the track and tries to hammer the ball down the track, can't get it past the bowler

Australia 28/1   GJ Maxwell 13* (11b 1x4 1x6)

Eranga to Maxwell, no run, short of length ball outside off, Maxwell slaps it back towards the bowler


Eranga to Maxwell, FOUR, thrashes that through cover, how hard was that hit? Maxwell skips down the track and lashes that short of length ball through the off side for four


Eranga to Maxwell, FOUR, full ball heading for the leg stump, Maxwell gets his front leg out of the way and drills that wide of mid-on for four, Maxwell gallops to 21


Eranga to Maxwell, no run, shortish ball just outside off, Maxwell wants to club that over midwicket but he can't connect

Australia 41/1   GJ Maxwell 21* (15b 3x4 1x6)

Kulasekara to Maxwell, FOUR, Maxwell throwing his bat at everything, short ball just outside off, a powerful pull in front of square leg for four, the man in the deep puts in a dive but that was too quick for him


Kulasekara to Maxwell, 1 wide, slides down the leg side, a free run for Australia


Kulasekara to Maxwell, 1 run, full ball just outside off, squeezed out towards extra cover for a single

Australia 52/2   GJ Maxwell 26* (17b 4x4 1x6)

Malinga to Maxwell, 1 wide, starts off with a slower-ball yorker, but he misses his direction, it's down the leg side


Malinga to Maxwell, 2 runs, he makes room and tries to slam it over long-on, but hits it high, really high and it comes down in the vacant region at wide long on


Malinga to Maxwell, FOUR, slower delivery on a length and what does big show do? He slams it down the ground. Mid-off had no chance


Malinga to Maxwell, OUT, no answers to this one from Malinga! He must have played these a few times in Mumbai, but he hasn't learnt much. It was a slower ball yorker and Maxwell, who was making room, missed it completely. The leg stump takes a beating

GJ Maxwell b Malinga 32 (25m 20b 5x4 1x6) SR: 160.00

Australia 59/3   GJ Maxwell 32 (20b 5x4 1x6)
