Aussie Glenn Maxwell has stunned fans with an unbelievable relay-catch with New Zealand teammate Jimmy Neesham in the IPL overnight.

Maxwell was fielding at deep long off for the Kings XI Punjab with Indian star Rohit Sharma teeing off in the T20 clash for the Mumbai Indians.

Sitting on 70 runs, off 44 balls, Sharma smacked Mohammed Shami down to the boundary where Maxwell chased back.

The Aussie was able to get a hand to the ball, but after briefly fumbling it and at full charge.

Maxwell then acrobatically threw the ball back, as he stumbled over the boundary, to teammate Neesham.

Neesham took a comfortable catch to remove the danger man.

Fans flocked to social media to applaud the ANZAC team up for the Kings.

Despite the moment of brilliance, the Indians went on to post 4/191, while the Kings fell 48 runs short.

Smith lost against Cummins in IPL clash

Cricket fans could be forgiven for thinking that Steve Smith knows Aussie counterpart Pat Cummins pretty well.

However, during their duel in the Indian Premier League, Smith looked completely lost when batting against his Australia and NSW teammate.

Cummins had already helped his Kolkata Knight Riders set Smith's Rajasthan Royals a victory target of 175 after contributing 12 runs with the bat.

He then had Smith all at sea when the Royals star came to the crease, with the incredible scenes leaving viewers shocked.

Smith started off well enough against his good mate Cummins, defending a well-pitched ball outside off stump in the second over of the innings.

The Aussie star's composure went out the window after that point, however, as a fierce spell from Cummins left the 31-year-old at sixes and sevens.

Smith swung at thin air after trying to slog the next delivery over mid-on, before almost edging behind off an awkward follow-up ball.

He then skied a mistimed drive back over Cummins' head that fortuitously dropped before the fielders in the deep could catch it.

The batsman's luck dried up on the next ball though as another attempted on-side slog caught the edge and fell into the grateful gloves of wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik.
