Glenn Maxwell hit an unbeaten 103, after taking 3-10, to give Australia a five-wicket win in England's opening game of the T20 tri-series. Maxwell's innings came after Australia went on a chase of 156 runs in Hobart. They were two down for four when the explosive Aussie batsman walked in.

He ended up scoring a 58-ball hundred even in a chase of just 156 runs. 

Steve Smith congratulated Maxwell on Twitter but still got roasted for his previous comments on the all-rounder. He wrote, "Great win Australia. Well played @Gmaxi_32 top drawer!"

Smith had earlier said Maxwell should ditch the "funky stuff" and stick to the basics if he wants to get back in the national one-day side. "Just looking at the way he trains, I think he could train a little bit smarter," Smith said.

"We've all seen the way he can come out and play and do all his funky stuff and be pretty cool with that, but when he puts his head down he's actually a really good batsman, as we've seen in Shield cricket – he's got some big runs there. If he keeps his head switched on and trains really well and focuses on basic things probably more than the expansive things then I think that will help him have his consistency."

"If he's having those consistent performances he's certainly a person you want in your team."

Maxwell fans had every word in their mind and didn't sit back when it comes to taking a jibe at Smith.
