IPL 2021: Glenn Maxwell is perhaps the first name that comes to everyone’s mind when it comes to sheer audacity in cricket among modern-era players. The Australian has produced so many wonderful moments with the bat that everyone has been left in awe of his time and time again. When done correctly, it is really attractive to the eyes! And it is a period when Maxwell is in the purple phase of his transformation, where everything he touches turns to gold.
Given his recent form and performances for RCB in the ongoing IPL 2021 season, the 32-year-old appears to have rediscovered his previous mojo, allowing him to express himself when batting. This was lacking in his approach last season, and fans have been treated to some raw power-hitting from the Australian this year. The all-rounder appears to be quite confident, which is reflected in how he has been practising in the nets.
Maxwell has returned with his trademark audacity
On Wednesday, Maxwell shared a series of videos on his Instagram story that shows off his current shape. The Australian can be seen striking the ball from the centre of the bat in the first part of the video, and the crackling sound reflects how brilliantly he is batting.
The second part of the film, however, drew everyone’s attention. The Australian can be seen attempting a couple of bold no-look strokes, which are extremely rare in cricket. While he missed the first one, he did manage to pull off the spectacular shot, demonstrating his great expertise.

Can the Australian replicate this no-look shot in the IPL 2021?
Glenn Maxwell is the only player who can try this no-look shot in a real-life competitive game. With 407 runs in 12 matches this season, the Aussie will now be seen in RCB’s vital next encounter against SRH on Wednesday, when a win might move Virat Kohli’s team closer to finishing in the top two.
In such a high-stakes situation, it will be intriguing to see if the ‘Big Show’ can come up with something outlandish that would wow everyone. Let us wait and see!
