One of the fastest scorers in world cricket, Glenn Maxwell has lit up the limited-overs formats and, at times, shown he can transfer that to the red ball. His ability to make unconventional shots appear routine - reverse sweeps and pulls, for example - makes it hard to set fields to cover all of his scoring areas. His audacity comes with risk, and he can exasperate as well as exhilarate, but at his best he can change a game in moments.
In 2017-18 his career entered a confusing stage as he was dropped from the ODI side and then told by new Australia coach Justin Langer to "go and make hundreds" without seemingly being given the opportunities to do so. However, he re-established himself in ODI and T20I sides, playing some stunning innings on the tours of India and the UAE. He scored his third T20I century in Bangalore to help Australia chase down 194.
Late in 2019, Maxwell took a mental-health break from the game. The time away, along with conversations about clarity of role with white-ball captain Aaron Finch, helped revive his form - he made four fifty-plus scores in six ODI innings in 2020, had an impressive IPL season with Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2021, and, in January 2022, became the first batter to breach the 150-run mark in a BBL innings. However he made little impact in the 2021 and 2022 T20 World Cups. Also a handy offspinner and outstanding fielder, Maxwell offers an impressive package in one-day and T20 cricket when things click.
He made his name for Victoria with a 19-ball half-century against Tasmania in 2010-11, the fastest fifty in Australia's one-day domestic history, and transferred that talent to the international stage. At the 2015 World Cup he blasted a 51-ball hundred against Sri Lanka at the SCG, then the fastest for Australia in ODIs and the second-quickest in World Cup history.
Australia have also used Maxwell in Tests but to less effect - patience at the crease has not generally been one of his strengths. However, in Delhi in 2013 he had the distinction of opening the batting and bowling in the same Test, as Australia searched in vain for something to turn their disastrous series around. He scored a maiden Test century against India in 2017 in Ranchi but was dropped following the 2017 tour of Bangladesh.
