Glenn Maxwell scored the fastest ever BBL century.

Nonetheless, this was Maxwell’s second century of the season. He had on December 15, 2021 scored a century against Sydney Sixers.

Known as the ‘Big Show’ Glenn Maxwell slammed the highest ever T20I score of the Big Bash League as he went on to score a massive 154 runs which included 22 fours and four sixes. Opening the batting, he had no mercy on Hobart Hurricanes as he smashed the second-fastest hundred in BBL which came in just 41 balls with Craig Simmons topping the chart for reaching the feat in 39 balls in 2014.

Maxwell hit 22 boundaries during his innings which is the best by any batter in T20. Thanks to this biggie, his side Melbourne Stars posted a massive 273/2 in their 20 overs. A number of records tumbled at the MCG as Melbourne registered the highest ever score registered in BBL with this being the third highest in T20 matches in any tournament.
