When it comes to sheer audaciousness in cricket, Glenn Maxwell is probably the first name that comes to everyone’s mind among players of modern era. Time and again, the Aussie has produced so many magical moments with the bat which has left everyone in awe of him. When it turns out right, it looks absolutely pleasing to the eyes! And it is a time when Maxwell is in the purple patch of form where everything he touches is being turned into gold.
Considering his recent form and performances for RCB in the ongoing season of IPL 2021, the 32-year-old looks to have found his old mojo back where he is able to express himself while batting. This is something which was missing in his approach last season and fans have been treated with some raw power-hitting from the Aussie this year. The all-rounder looks very confident, which is also very evident with how he has been practicing in the nets.
Maxwell is back with his sheer audaciousness
On Wednesday, Maxwell posted a series of video on his Instagram story which gives a clear demonstration of his current form. In the first half of the video, the Aussie can be seen hitting the ball from the middle of bat and the crackling sound act as reflection of how well he is batting.
However, it was the second half of the video which caught everyone’s attention. The Aussie can be seen attempting few audacious no-look shots, which is a very rare shot in cricket. While he missed the first one, he did manage to pull off the incredible shot, giving a glimpse of his extreme skillful abilities.

Can the Aussie produce this no-look shot in IPL 2021?
If there is one player who can attempt this no-look shot in an actual competitive game, it has to be Glenn Maxwell. Having already amassed 407 runs in 12 matches this season, the Aussie will now be seen in RCB’s crucial next match against SRH on Wednesday, where a win could take Virat Kohli’s side a step further in their pursuit of finishing in top two.
In such a pressure situation, it will be interesting to see if the ‘Big Show’ can come up with something outrageous to leave everyone in shock. Let’s wait and watch!
