In the second and final T20I against Australia at Brisbane, Mahela Jayawardene had an ugly spat with Australia’s Glenn Maxwell who was waiting for the final ball to be bowled with Australia needing 4 runs to win of the final delivery. Mahela was having a group discussion on the field with the bowler Thisara Perera and skipper Angelo Mathews and they were taking some time to deliver the last ball due to which Glenn Maxwell said something in annihilation which led Mahela to outburst on him and he abused him at the same time.
