Glenn James Maxwell Biography in Details

Glenn James Maxwell (born October 14, 1988) is an Australian professional cricketer. He has represented Australia in all formats of the game since 2012, primarily excelling in One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is). Maxwell is a versatile player known for his unorthodox batting style and occasional off-spin bowling.

Born / Wiki:

Maxwell was born in Kew, Victoria, and began his cricket journey playing junior cricket for South Belgrave Cricket Club. Before transitioning to off-spin bowling, he initially played as a fast bowler.


Domestic career

After Andrew McDonald’s injury in November, Maxwell joined the Victorian team in the 2009-10 season. In February 2010, he made his senior debut for a one-day team and was selected to play for the Australian Institute of Sport in the 2010 Emerging Players Tournament.

Maxwell made waves in February 2011 with a blistering knock of 51 runs off 19 balls against Tasmania in the Ryobi Cup, marking the fastest half-century in Australian domestic one-day history. He also made his first-class debut for Victoria in the same month. In the following month, he scored his maiden first-class century, making 103 runs against South Australia. In the 2011 Emerging Players Tournament, he scored 59 runs off 23 balls against India and 110 runs off 52 balls against South Africa.

In 2012, before participating in the T20 Blast for a county, Maxwell played club cricket for South Wilts Cricket Club and for Hampshire’s Second XI in England.

In 2019, Maxwell showcased his batting skills for Lancashire during a Royal London One-Day Cup match.

Maxwell attempted to transfer to New South Wales before the 2016-17 summer but was denied permission and was omitted from the Victorian team for the first match of the Sheffield Shield season. He was later included in the next Shield game and scored 81 runs.

T20 franchise cricket

Maxwell has played in Twenty20 cricket franchise leagues in Australia, India, and England. In the Big Bash League, he initially played for the Melbourne Renegades in the 2012-13 season and has been playing for the Melbourne Stars since then. During the 2021-22 season, he scored an unbeaten 154 runs against the Hobart Hurricanes, breaking the record for the highest individual score in the league and taking his team to the highest team score in league history.

In India, he played for the Delhi Daredevils in 2012, having been bought by the Mumbai Indians in the 2013 IPL auction, which became the most expensive purchase in the auction, valued at $1 million. He was purchased by Kings XI Punjab in 2014, where he scored 95, 89, 95, and 90 runs during the season. With an average of 34.50 runs per inning, he scored 552 runs in 16 matches, making it the third-highest run total of the season, and he was retained by the team for the next two seasons. His return to Delhi for the 2018 season was disappointing, scoring only 142 runs with an average of 14 and failing to surpass the 50-run mark even once. Eventually, he was bought by Punjab again due to the bidding war between Delhi and Punjab before the 2020 season. In 2021, after another bidding war, he was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore, this time with Chennai Super Kings, ending the season as the team’s top scorer with 513 runs. He was retained by the team for the 2022 season.

In England, Maxwell has played for Hampshire, Surrey, Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Warwickshire county cricket clubs in the T20 Blast and for London Spirit in The Hundred’s 2022 season.

International career

Maxwell was selected for the Australia A series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in 2012. Chief selector John Inverarity described him as “a versatile and vibrant off-spinning all-rounder and an outstanding fielder” who would “provide another spin bowling option at a time when turning wickets are expected.” He made his debut in a solitary One Day International (ODI) against Afghanistan, which preceded the matches against Pakistan, before being selected to play in five out of six matches against Pakistan. Due to scores of 38, 28, and an unbeaten 56 in the three ODI matches, he was selected for two Twenty20 International (T20I) matches, in which he scored four runs in his T20I debut and 27 runs off 20 balls in the final match of the series, also taking his first international wicket.

He was then chosen for the same team for the ICC World Twenty20 tournament in Sri Lanka in 2012, followed by Australia’s matches in the UAE. He played in all five group stage matches for Australia, taking one wicket and scoring only eight runs in two innings, where he batted, but was dropped from the team for the semifinal against the West Indies. After the competition, Maxwell played for Australia A and Cricket Australia Chairman’s XI against Sri Lanka, where he scored 64 runs and took 2/70 in the Chairman’s XI. Towards the end of the year, he was called up to the Australian team for the third Test against the touring Sri Lankan team, replacing Shane Watson before the match. He did not play in the Test but was brought back into the team for three out of five ODIs played in January and both T20Is. He was involved in controversy in the final T20I match of the series when he got into an argument with opposition players after failing to hit a boundary off the last ball.

Test match debut

In February, Maxwell showcased his versatility by making a quickfire 51 off 35 balls in the opening ODI against the West Indies. He then proved his bowling prowess by claiming four crucial wickets in the series’ second match. Subsequently, he made his Test debut as an all-rounder for Australia against India in Hyderabad, contributing with both bat and ball. Maxwell impressed with the ball, taking four wickets, while also chipping in with 21 runs across both innings.

Post 2023 World Cup

After helping Australia win their sixth ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Maxwell continued his T20I success in 2024 by scoring his fourth and fifth centuries in the format. In November 2023, against India, he smashed 104 runs off just 48 balls, guiding Australia to a total of 223 runs, with eight fours and eight sixes. This innings marked his fourth T20I century, making him the second player after Rohit Sharma to achieve this feat and the Australian with the most T20I centuries. He reached this milestone in just 92 balls, becoming the fastest player to score four T20I centuries. Maxwell also set the record for the fastest century by an Australian batsman in T20 cricket, reaching his hundred in just 47 balls. Additionally, he holds the record for the most centuries under pressure in T20I history, with three out of his four centuries scored in challenging situations. On February 11, 2024, in his 94th T20I innings against the West Indies, he scored his fifth T20I century, matching Rohit Sharma’s record for the most T20I centuries in a career. He scored 120 runs off 55 balls, further solidifying his reputation as one of the greatest T20I batsmen of all time.


In March 2022, Maxwell tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Vini Raman. The couple welcomed their first child, a son, in September 2023.
