On Wednesday, October 25, Great demonstrate Glenn Maxwell, made an appearance at the celebration in New Delhi. During a 2023 World Cup encounter at Arun Jaitley Stadium, the Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell’s Record Breaking Century created history in One-Day International cricket by becoming the fourth quickest player to hit a century in just 40 balls. This feat completely destroyed the Netherlands’ bowling attack.
In addition to shattering Aden Markram’s record from earlier this month, when he assisted South Africa in amassing an enormous 428 runs against Sri Lanka’s bowling attack during the One-Day World Cup, Glenn Maxwell also smashed the mark for the quickest century in World Cup history.
“GLENN MAXWELL” : WHO IS HE ?
Among Australia’s most well-known professional cricket players is Glenn Maxwell. He is well-known for his memorable exploits in Twenty20s and One Day Internationals (ODIs), the shorter forms of cricket.
Glenn didn’t play Test cricket until 2017, after making his debut in the format in 2013. After Shane Watson, he is the second Australian to score hundreds in all three forms.
On October 14, 1988, Glenn James Maxwell was born in Kew, Victoria, Australia. He is one of Neil Maxwell and his wife Joy Maxwell’s three children. He has a sister named Lisa and an elder brother named Daniel. Glenn played cricket for South Belgrave CC as a youth. He weighs seventy-three kilograms and six feet eleven inches tall.
It is believed that Glenn Maxwell is worth $40 million. He credits his successful career in franchise and international cricket for the most of his riches. He received $1,000 from the Indian Premier League’s Delhi Daredevils in 2012. Later, in the following season, the Mumbai Indians put him up for auction and raised an incredible $1 million.
For more over three years, Glenn and his longtime partner Vini Raman have been romantically involved. Following Indian customs and traditions, Glenn and Vini were engaged at a private ceremony in 2020.

Throughout his innings, Maxwell used his signature reverse sweeps to dispatch the Netherlands’ bowlers with confidence and clean bowl them.
