1 0 1 127 0

In a crucial match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Australia found themselves in a tight spot, chasing down a target of 292 against Afghanistan. 

It was a high-pressure situation, and one man, who stepped up to become the hero that Australia desperately needed was Glenn Maxwell.

Glenn Maxwell’s innings in this match can only be described as heroic. He walked into bat when Australia were reeling at 49/4, with their top-order batsmen dismissed early. He was under immense pressure and began constructing his innings with calculated aggression.

As wickets kept tumbling around him, Maxwell kept going from one end, taking on one Afghan spinner after the other. 

He reached his first fifty in 51 balls. Realizing that he was not going to get much support from the other end after the fall of the seventh wicket, with the score on 91, Maxwell then took things into his own hands.

Two consecutive sixes came off Noor Ahmad in the 29th over. A four and a six off successive balls came off Mujeeb Ur Rahman in the 32nd. 

In the blink of an eye, Maxwell had gone from 50 to 100 in the space of 25 balls, notching up his hundred in just 76 deliveries.

Barely being able to move his feet to get into good positions to play shots, Maxwell somehow managed to hit fours and sixes to take Australia over the line and become the first double-centurion in ODIs in a run-chase.

Australia achieved a remarkable victory, thanks to Glenn Maxwell’s herculean effort, finishing at 293/7 in 46.5 overs. 

The win not only boosted Australia’s confidence but also solidified Maxwell’s reputation as a match-winner in the world of cricket.
