Glenn Maxwell has surprised the Indian side with his decisiveness on the pitch and bowlers are finding it way too hard to dismiss him during the 3rd Test of the India vs Australia 2017 Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
First, it was Jadeja’s exceptional catch and then, it was Wriddhiman Saha’s giggle-worthy dedication on the very first. And now, we got to witness the power of Umesh Yadav.
The first delivery of the day, Glenn Maxwell on strike, Umesh Yadav opening the bowling and then came a broken bat.
There was nothing special about that particular delivery except the fact that it was Fast. By fast we mean 140 kmph Fast!! Just like any other batsman, Glenn Maxwell used his blade for a defence but the ball hit straight at the centre and Maxwell’s tool of the trade broke into two pieces.
Both Glenn Maxwell and Umesh Yadav had a small laugh about it, leaving behind all the differences between the teams. The Aussie, surprised by the broken bat, smiled at Umesh who in turn gestured like a bodybuilder, showcasing his strength.
Here is the Video of That Incident:
Maxwell, later on, went to score his maiden Test hundred for Australia in Ranchi and this was also the first time that he faced more than 98 deliveries in an innings.
