Aussie cricket great Adam Gilchrist has taken a cheeky dig at Glenn Maxwell in Big Bash commentary that left the World Cup winner gobsmacked. Melbourne Stars allrounder Maxwell joined Gilchrist and former England captain Michael Vaughan for a commentary stint during the Strikers' win over the Hurricanes.

The allrounder's short appearance was going smoothly, until the topic turned to golf. Perth Scorchers batter Laurie Evans reportedly has a fantastic handicap of +2 and this prompted Gilchrist to take a cheeky jab at Maxwell's golf incident during the World Cup in India.

"You could be his caddie, Maxi. You go all right in golf cart's don't you?" Gilchrist said, before him and Vaughan burst into laughter. Gilchrist was referring to Maxwell's infamous golf cart incident during last year's World Cup when he was reportedly concussed after he fell off the back of the cart when it was transporting the players back.

The incident meant Maxwell missed the next match against old enemies England due to concussion protocols. While Maxwell looked stunned at the cheeky dig from Gilchrist, he was able to throw in his own shade.

"A golf cart wasn't even involved," Maxwell said with a smile. "Next game was alright, felt like I needed it to." Maxwell was referring to his remarkable innings against Afghanistan. The allrounder returned to the team and scored the highest ever One Day International innings for an Aussie in a run chase.

The Aussies looked dead and buried at 7-91 while chasing 292 for victory on Tuesday night, before Maxwell produced one of the finest knocks in one-day cricket history. The swash buckling all-rounder made 201 not out off 128 balls as Australia chased down the victory target with 3.1 overs remaining. The victory sealed Australia's place in the semi-finals and the team went on to win the tournament.

The trio laughed off the cheeky exchange as they watched Adelaide triumph in a five-wicket game against the Hurricanes. Maxwell has continued his strong World Cup form into the domestic league having helped the Stars into finals contention.

Adelaide Strikers win crucial Hobart clash

The Adelaide Strikers moved to fifth on the table after the crucial victory, leaving them just a point outside the top four. The Strikers will play the Hurricanes again on Thursday and if they manage to win, and defeat the Sydney Thunder the following game, they will move past the Melbourne Stars on the ladder.

The loss was crushing for the Hurricanes who have fallen back a point behind in sixth. Both teams needed to win the contest and Thursday's match will now also be pivotal for both teams to have any chance of qualifying.

"It's huge ... obviously the boys are starting to believe now," Adelaide spinner Cameron Boyce told Seven. "Another couple of big games for us but hopefully we get those two wins and we will be on the roll ... bring on finals if we can make it. We didn't really nail things early on in the tournament, which is disappointing and put us in this position that we're in ... we just need to keep believing and keep surging on."
