Pat Cummins Praises Glenn Maxwell’s Record-Breaking 201 as the Best ODI Innings in History at ICC Cricket World Cup 2023

1 min read

Australia was at 91 for 7, but Maxwell and Cummins scored an unbroken partnership of 202. Maxwell hit an innings of 128 balls, full of 6s and 4s, amid struggling with cramp. Chasing 292, he played unusually, swatting despite losing mobility. He was tempted to retire, but finished with 21 fours and 10 sixes, reaching the first 200 in an ODI. He admitted to feeling “horrific” and having lived a “charmed life”. Captain Cummins marveled at Maxwell’s performance, calling it “ridiculous.” Also, Afghanistan’s captain lamented a missed opportunity for them. Andrew Miller is UK editor of ESPNcricinfo.
