Early life
Maxwell was born in Kew, Victoria, and played his junior cricket for South Belgrave CC. He began his cricket as a pace bowler, before remodelling his run-up and becoming an off spin bowler. Despite that, he also has a deceptively powerful and accurate throw to effect run-outs. He also effected the runout of Tim Southee in the 2015 Cricket World Cup final to end New Zealand’s innings, which helped Australia win their 5th title.

Maxwell’s teammates and the media gave him the nickname “The Big Show” due to his confidence and his tendency to play extravagant shots, especially a wide array and variations of sweep shots. He however prefers the nickname “Maxi”.

ODI career[edit]
Maxwell made his debut for Australia against Afghanistan in a One Day International in the United Arab Emirates in 2012. In his 2nd ODI, playing against Pakistan, he hit an unbeaten 56, including a six to seal victory for Australia. On 10 January 2013, he played his first ODI at home against Sri Lanka, being involved in two run outs off consecutive balls. He remained wicketless throughout the series, however, and failed in three innings with the bat.

On 1 February 2013, he scored 51* (from 35 balls) as an opener as Australia chased down the target of 71 set by the West Indies in their first ODI. On 3 February in the series’ 2nd ODI in Perth, he scored a duck, but took 4/63 with the ball to support Mitchell Starc (5/32) and help bowl out the visitors for 212 in 38.1 overs.

Maxwell was also part of Australia’s 15 man squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.[11] He made 66 runs of 38 balls in the first match against England and 88 runs off 39 balls against Afghanistan. Later on in the tournament, he blasted a 51-ball century against Sri Lanka at the SCG, the fastest for Australia in ODI’s and the second-quickest in World Cup history. It was also during early 2015 that Maxwell broke into the top 10 of the ICC one-day international batting rankings.[12][13] He was not needed to bat in the final as Australia won the match by 7 wickets and also won their fifth World Cup title. Maxwell ended 3rd highest run scorer in Australia’s team behind Steve Smith (402) and David Warner (345), scoring 324 runs at an average of 64.80 with a strike rate of 182.02.

Test career
On March 2013, he made his Test debut against India in the second Test at Hyderabad.[6] He was included as the second spinner in the team, supporting Xavier Doherty. Maxwell failed to impress with the bat, making 13 and 8 in the first and second innings respectively, and was dropped from the team in the third test. He made a comeback in the fourth and final test in Delhi due to a Michael Clarke injury, however failed again with the bat making just 10 and 8.

Maxwell made a return to the test team in October 2014 against Pakistan in the UAE, playing the 2nd match of the series. He made 37 in the first innings and just 4 in the second, and has not since been selected for the Test team.

T20 International Career
Maxwell was named in Australia’s 15 man Squad for 2014 World T20. He had a great start to the tournament by making 74 of just 33 balls including 7 fours and 6 sixes against Pakistan in Australia’s First group stage match.[14] He finished the series as Australia’s second highest run scorer, making 147 at an average of 36.75 with a strike rate of 210.00.

Maxwell was first signed by the Delhi Daredevils in 2012 as a replacement player for Travis Birt who withdrew from the squad. At the 2013 IPL auctions, Maxwell was the most expensive player as Mumbai Indians bought him for 1 million US dollars. He was out of the Mumbai Indians retention team 2014 as per IPL 2014 retention rules.

In 2014, he was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs. 6 crore. In his team’s opening match against Chennai Super Kings, he scored 95 runs from 43 balls (with 15 fours and two sixes) to chase down a target of 206 in 18.5 overs. In the second match against Rajasthan Royals, he hit 89 off 45 balls with eight fours and six sixes, which included frequent reverse shots, helping his team win against a high target. In the third match, Maxwell scored 95 runs from 43 balls with 9 sixes and 5 fours against Sunrisers Hyderabad and was awarded Man of the Match for the third time in a row. In the 29th match of the IPL on 7 May 2014 against Chennai Super Kings, Maxwell scored 90 runs off just 38 balls with 6 fours and 8 sixes and picked up the wicket of Suresh Raina while bowling, winning the Man of the Match award for the fourth time in the season. Punjab went on to post a massive score of 231, the highest innings score of season. In 16 games he had the season’s 3rd highest aggregate of 552 runs at an average of 34.50.

He was retained by Kings XI Punjab for 2015 IPL Season. He failed to impress in that season, not making a score higher than 43 and being dropped from the team, making an overall 145 runs in 11 games at an average of 13.18.
