Mark Watt’s beauty to dismiss Glenn Maxwell

While Australian chase captured all the attention, there were quite a few moments in the game that had its own fun, including Mark Watt’s tremendous bowling and his dismissal of star cricketer Glenn Maxwell. On the second delivery of the ninth over of Australian chase, Watt came round the wicket and dismissed Maxwell with a peach of a delivery.

Watt bowled a good length ball drifted with the angle that drew Maxwell into playing onto the on-side and then spun across the right-handed batter. Maxwell had already closed the face of the bat, it might’ve grazed the outside edge before crashing into the off-stump, leaving the Aussie batter stunned.
