BBL 2021/22

Watch: Glenn Maxwell takes absurd over-the-shoulder one-hander that even he can’t believe

by Wisden Staff 3 minute read

Watch: Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell pulled off an absolutely unbelievable catch against Brisbane Heat in the BBL.

The special grab came in the 16th over of the Brisbane Heat innings, when Sam Heazlett tried to heave Melbourne Stars bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile over mid-on, Maxwell setting off after the ball at full pace.

It seemed that the ball would win the race, until the very last moment when Maxwell stretched out his arm and leapt, clinging on with his left hand. He seemed stunned at his own achievement, covering his mouth with his hand before he revealed a sheepish smile.
