Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell is renowned for his ruthless hitting and sensational batting, often leaving opponents scrambling for cover. His ability to play stunning innings and singlehandedly win matches is a hallmark of his cricketing prowess. What sets him apart is the rapid pace at which he accomplishes this, often completing the destruction in just 30-60 balls, catching opponents off guard.

In the ongoing World Cup 2023, Maxwell showcased his explosive form with blistering knocks, including a record-breaking double century. Despite facing setbacks against India, Pakistan, and South Africa, he dismantled the Sri Lankan challenge with a quick 31(21) and then blazed through Netherlands with the fastest hundred, scoring 101*(44) with 8 sixes. Maxwell continued his stellar performance with 38(28) against New Zealand.

However, the pinnacle of his World Cup journey came against Afghanistan when Australia found themselves at 91/7, teetering on the brink of elimination. In a jaw-dropping display, Maxwell scored the fastest double century in ODI history, smashing 201*(128) with 21 fours and 10 sixes. What astonished everyone was that he played through serious cramps, refusing to retire hurt.

Behind Maxwell's merciless annihilation on the field, there is an Indian connection. Maxwell is married to Vini Raman, of Indian origin, born in Melbourne to parents originally from Chennai, India. A qualified pharmacist, Vini and Maxwell's love story began through mutual friends, leading to a deep connection that blossomed into romance. The couple got engaged in February 2020 and tied the knot in Australia, celebrating both Christian and traditional Tamil rituals in March 2022.

Recently, they welcomed their first child, Logan Maverick Maxwell, who accompanies them on Maxwell's cricketing journeys. Vini, a pillar of support, celebrated her husband's epic innings with a heartfelt Instagram story, expressing 'all the emotions' as Maxwell secured victory against Afghanistan. Maxwell has often credited Vini for keeping him calm, composed, and boosting his confidence during challenging times, showcasing the strength of their partnership both on and off the field.
