S*** question - Maxwell unimpressed with journalist

Updated: 

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.
