S*** question - Maxwell storms out of IPL press conference

Glenn Maxwell appeared to be asked about his performances against spin bowlers and the Australian reacted angrily before walking out.

Already frustrated after Kings XI Punjab slumped to back-to-back Indian Premier League defeats, captain Glenn Maxwell was left irate by a journalist and his questioning.

It was a night to forget for Kings XI, who suffered a 51-run loss to Delhi Daredevils on Saturday.


Kings XI struggled in response to Delhi's 188-6, stuttering to 137-9 after 20 overs as Maxwell contributed nothing but a duck in the run chase.


Fronting the media afterwards, Maxwell appeared to be asked about his performances against spin bowlers and the Australian all-rounder reacted angrily before walking out.

"That's a shocking question," Maxwell said as he shook his head.


"Do you understand in the last three games I've hit leg spinners for six repeatedly?

"S*** question."

In four matches in the IPL this season, Maxwell has scores of 44 (not out), 43 (not out) and 25, while he is yet to take a wicket.
