Melbourne Stars registered their seventh win of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) on Friday (January 10). The win against Melbourne Renegades by seven wickets put them at the top of the points table. On the other hand, Renegades' loss meant they are yet to win a single game in the tournament after eight matches.
It was Glenn Maxwell's show which snatched the game away from Renegades. The Stars were struggling at 3-54 while chasing 169 runs.
Maxwell blasted an unbeaten 83 from 45 balls which included seven sixes and a four in the innings.
The Australia cricketer scored at a strike-rate of 184.44 and with the ball, the all-rounder conceded just 20 runs in three overs without any wicket. His performance got him the Man of the Match award.
Stars' leggie Sandeep Lamichhane was so much fascinated by his senior's innings that he asked Maxwell if the Aussie is really from planet earth? "@Gmaxi_32 , you were just amazing.???? Those were some monster hits from you.???? I have a question for you, Are you seriously from this planet?", wrote Sandeep.
Responding to him, Maxwell wrote, "Same planet as you legend! Keep being a genius ????????".
