Aussie cricketers Glenn Maxwell and Steve Smith are two of the most loved and popular members of the Australian side in India. Over the years, their exploits in the IPL have given them a huge fan following that is comparable to many Indian stars in the country.
While Smith has played in several IPL teams, Maxwell truly began to shine with the Kings XI Punjab side. When Punjab made it to the final a few years ago, Maxwell was instrumental as his belligerent hitting provided them with the ammunition at the top.

While neither of them made a mark in Chennai, their previous experience in Indian conditions should hold them in good stead for the remaining matches in the series.
Now in a recent video, we see Glenn and Steve trying out for the new cricket game from Big Ant studios. Both players have sensors placed over them as the developers of the game needed to incorporate their batting stance in the gameplay.
In the video, we see Maxwell having a bit of fun as he imitates his captain’s batting stance. He also tried to re-enact the famous reaction that Smith gave to Sharma in Australia’s last tour to India.
In response, Smith re-created Maxwell’s ridiculous dismissal, when he apparently left the ball which then crashed into his stumps!
