There is no stopping for Glenn Maxwell


It seems there is no bowler in this season of the IPL can take the measure of Glenn Maxwell. He is just unstoppable. Only just when he is into his 90s (twice this season on 95) he looks more vulnerable, but by that time KXIP has scored too many runs and they are probably in the safest territory already. This time around, one must say that Maxwell was a bit lucky because he got caught off a No ball when he was in his 40s, but that wasn’t his fault either. On the other hand, SRH should look into their batting as they have the best and worst batsmen in their ranks and their batting lineup looks thin after No. 3, same is with the KXIP too, but at least they are winning.
