Leeds: Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has proven his brilliance once again, taking a stunning one-handed catch while holding an ice cream in a charity match here at the Bardsley’s Keswick Lane ground.
Maxwell was representing reigning county champions Yorkshire in a charity match against local village club Bardsley when he reeled in the remarkable catch without dropping what appears to be a Cornetto, though the identity of the ice cream in question remains unknown, cricket.com.au reported on Wednesday.
After completing the catch, Maxwell took another bite of his ice cream before returning the ball, leaving even the dismissed batsman Ed Clayton to applaud his effort.
The dynamic Victorian scored 27 in Yorkshire’s three-run win in front of 400 spectators at the ground.
Named in the ICC's 2015 World Cup Team of the Tournament in Australia’s triumphant campaign in March, Maxwell is plying his trade in England for Jason Gillespie’s Yorkshire alongside close friend and Australia teammate Aaron Finch.
The 26-year-old will leave Yorkshire later this month to link up with Australia 'A' for two four-day matches against India 'A' in the subcontinent before featuring in a limited-overs tri-series against India 'A' and South Africa 'A'.
