On Wednesday, Glenn Maxwell of Kings XI Punjab, playing against the Chennai Super Kings, smashed 90 off 38 balls even as Kings XI Punjab amassed a massive 231/4 in their 20 overs in the IPL.

This was Maxwell's fourth fifty of the tournament, adding to his scores of 95, 95 and 89 earlier. In all these innings, his strike rate has stood above 200 and he has amazed the spectators and the opposition alike with his breathtaking batting.

Glenn Maxwell has already become a big favourite of cricket fans on social media, and after his blitzkreig on Wednesday, Twitter was flooded with Tweeple's reactions. While praising Maxwell, people also heaped scorn, ridicule and pity on Chennai Super Kings, who became the subjects of much trolling.

This user compared R Ashwin to a samosa:

Ya, this might be the rationale behind bowling Ashwin:

But we can't call Maxwell this on our website:

This user is as amazed with Maxwell not yet getting a hundred as we are. But his praise is right on target:

Haha. M&M here stands for Maxwell and Miller:

Ravi Shastri, please take notes:

Mr Roy is unable to delink the Indian elections from the IPL:

Yes, Chennai's approach in the initial overs was baffling:

Is Rajnikanth listening to this?

In retrospect, one can only hope that Maxwell does finally get to his century in this year's Indian Premier League. His performance this year is arguably even better than Chris Gayle's last year. Punjab are also on a hot streak of form and if Maxwell continues this way, the title is surely in their grasp already.
