While the Ashes series might be some time away, the historic rivalry between England and Australia was reignited during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

As always, the fierce competition between these two teams led to some heated and memorable moments on the field.

One of the standout moments of the match occurred during the 14th over of England’s innings, bowled by Josh Hazlewood. England’s Jonny Bairstow attempted a slog hit but only managed to connect with the toe-end of his bat, sending the ball towards deep mid-wicket.

Glenn Maxwell, positioned in the deep, took a safe catch and then turned to a group of English supporters. In a cheeky celebration, Maxwell performed John Cena‘s iconic ‘you can’t see me’ gesture, mocking the English fans and adding a bit of theatrical flair to the dismissal of Bairstow.
