The on–going ninth edition of the Big Bash League is producing some magnificent moments of joy for the fans. One expects to get to see some breath taking hitting or some furious spell of bowling or a majestic performance from a spinner or a brilliant catch on the field.
Especially, when we talk about T20 cricket, we see players producing all these brilliant moments now and then. During the 13th match of BBL 2019-20 between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars, Melbourne Stars skipper Glenn Maxwell hit a brilliant a shot for an unbelievable six.
It happened in the 16th over of the second innings when Melbourne Stars,chasing a target of 175, were 117-4 in 15 overs. The moment came when Wes Agar came to bowl the 16 over of match and his third of the innings, on the third ball of the over when Glenn Maxwell sat down to slash a wide delivery from Agar over the point region for an extra-ordinary six. Actually, not only the timing of the shot was good but also it was the powerful hit from the Maxwell. However, Maxwell also went a little bit off balance.
In the end, Melbourne Stars remained five runs short of the target as they finished with 170-6 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
