Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is looking all set for the T20I series against India. The right-handed batter has been spending a lot of time in the nets working on his power hitting that could be seen in the opening encounter at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday, 20 September. The Royal Challengers Bangalore all-rounder is known for hitting big sixes in T20s. 

But for the India-Australia tour, Maxwell is preparing a weapon as he was seen batting left-handed. The cricketing world has seen glimpses of the Big Show batting left-handed as he often pulls out reverse sweeps or switch hits. The video was captioned, “Maxi is making sure he bats lefty-righty according to the situation 🤪🤩 #IndvsAus @Gmaxi_32 @CricketAus.”

Addressing this tour, Australia will see the debut all-rounder Tim David, who has emerged as one of the exciting players for the upcoming World Cup. Speaking about David, Maxwell expressed how David’s abilities are rare as he hit boundaries in different areas.

While speaking to ESPNcricinfo in an interview, Maxwell said, “One of the rare things he has which there isn’t a whole lot of in Australia is just raw power. He’s able to muscle the ball, much in the same way Stoinis and Mitch Marsh do it. He’s probably developed his game a little bit over the last two years where he’s got a bit more off-side [shots] so he’s not a one-dimensional hitter, he’s able to clear the boundary in different areas.”
