Maxwell took his time and responded to this tweet, saying: “Must be hard carrying bags that are 46,44,46.” He was referring to that over where he belted the Kiwi all-rounder for 28 runs. This happened when Australia toured New Zealand last month and Maxwell belted the Kiwi all-rounder in the third T20I.

It was a five-match series and the third and fourth T20Is between New Zealand and Australia was played behind closed doors.
The first and second T20I between New Zealand Women (White Ferns) and England Women will also be played behind closed doors following the change to New Zealand’s alert levels with an eye on the Covid-19 pandemic.
The decision regarding the fifth T20I between New Zealand and Australia and the third T20I between White Ferns and England will be taken later on.
Neesham was snapped up by defending champions Mumbai Indians, Maxwell was picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2021 Auction. As per IPL 2021 Schedule Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore will face each other on April 9.
