A few days back earlier, Former Australian cricketer Ian Chappell requests International Cricket Council (ICC) to ban the reverse switch shots, but there wasn’t any statement come, Glenn Maxwell has shown his way of magic by launching one more reverse switch shot for a huge six which was bowled by Kuldeep Yadav in the third and final ODIs match of the series which was played at Manuka Oval, Canberra.
At present there is no batman who can hit these type of massive sixes with perfection and ease. Glenn Maxwell had hit more sixes than any player which can easily considered him as the picasso of this art. He hit reverse six on the third ball of the 43rd over bowled by Kuldeep Yadav. The six was too long that ball reached towards the second tier of the stadium stands.
This type of risky shot is always picked up by Glenn Maxwell who always amaze everyone with his blistering batting. He always entertains his fan through this unorthodox shots. A few days back Ian Chappell commented on this shot calling as an unfair shot where batsman himself switches from his original batting position which effects the bowling side where the opponents skipper and bowler sets the field according to the ball, bowler bowls. It effects the fielding conditions and thus demolishes the actual morale of the game. The same David Warner had also done in the first two ODIs matches against India.

“[Switch-hitting] is a very skilful, some of its amazingly skilful- but it’s not fair. How can one side of the game, that is the bowlers, they have to tell the umpires how they are going to bowl. And yet the batsman, he lines up as a right-hander- I’m the fielding captain, I place the field for the right hander and before the ball’s been delivered, the batsman becomes a left hander,” said by Ian Chappell to Wide World of Sports.
“It’s very simple. Maxwell hit a couple of switch hit shots and Warner did (Sunday) night All you have got to say that if the batsman changes the order of his hands or his feet (as the bowler runs in), then it’s an illegal shot,” quoted by Ian Chappell.
