Thanks to the run-out, the Tigers were saved from the full force of his bat, which becomes a ruthless sword more often than not

Australia were 313 for the loss of two wickets when David Warner got out after scoring a magnificent 166 off just 147 deliveries. 

Australia were cruising towards a big total and it was the perfect set-up for Glenn Maxwell, one of the finest hitters, to go and play an all-out game. 

The Aussies promoted Maxwell in the batting order, ahead of Steve Smith, at No 4. 

And the right-hander delivered as he smashed a timely innings of 32 off just 10 deliveries to lift the tempo furthermore for Australia. 

“The Big Show” smashed two fours and three sixes in his 10-ball stay at the crease.

He scored 23 runs from five balls against pacer Rubel Hossain in the 46th over, including two fours, two sixes and a three. 

Rubel conceded 24 runs in that over. 

However, the pacer got some measure of revenge as his brilliant direct throw from short-fine leg got rid of Maxwell after a mix-up with Usman Khawaja. 

Maxwell looked disgruntled with the dismissal as he went berserk out in the middle. 

Thanks to the run-out, the Tigers were saved from the full force of his bat, which becomes a ruthless sword more often than not.
