Glenn Maxwell scored an unbeaten 201 runs off 128 balls, laced with 21 fours and 10 sixes. His innings took the five-time champions to the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2023.

Chasing 292 to win the game, Australia were 91/7 at one stage and there was no chance for the Aussies to comeback into the game. However, the Big Show took on the bowlers and played one of the best innings in the history of one-day internationals.

He refused to call it as the best knock of his career. “I would have liked it to be a chanceless innings but I was given many. It was satisfying to lead the team to a win. I am more proud of my partnership with Pat Cummins,” he said.
