It has been the most talked about shot of the summer.
But if you expect Glenn Maxwell to put his switch hit away anytime soon, think again.
Ahead of tonight’s opening T20 against India, the master blaster said he will continue to play the shot.
“It’s within the laws,” Maxwell said.
“I think batting has evolved in such a way that it’s just got better and better over the years which is why we’re seeing these massive scores getting chased down and scores are going up.

“They’re (bowlers) having to come up with different change-ups and different ways to stop batters and with the way they shut down one side of the ground and whatnot.
“I suppose the way that batting is evolving, I think bowling has got to evolve to the same stage, so you see guys come up with knuckle balls and wide-yorker fields and different tactics.
