Maxwell Breaks Many Records Against AFG

Maxwell Hits Double Century, Drives Australia To Beat AFG By Three Wickets. Australia lost seven wickets early before Glenn Maxwell hit a double century to guide them past Afghanistan with 19 balls remaining and win by three wickets with 19 balls left for batting.

Australia Vs Afghanistan Cricket Highlights in Mumbai Wankhede Stadium on November 7 saw Australia struggle against Afghanistan with a target of 292 runs but eventually triumphantly won with Glenn Maxwell scoring an unbeaten and incredible double century, leading them past Afghanistan by three wickets during an ICC World Cup match at Wankhede Stadium on Mumbai on November 7.

After being put in to bat second, Afghanistan bowlers quickly dislodged Travis Head (0), Davis Warner (18), Mitchell Marsh (24), Marnus Labuschagne 14 (14), Josh Inglis 0 (0), Marcus Stoinis 6 (6 players) and Mitchell Starc 3 wickets as quickly as Afghanistan did so themselves.

Glenn Maxwell (201*) kept up the run rate by hitting boundaries and sixes, even while suffering a leg sprain. In just 128 balls (21 4s and 10, 6s), he scored his double-century – becoming the first Australian ever to do so in an ODI.

Pat Cummins proved the ideal partner on the other side, scoring 12 runs from 68 balls without being dismissed while keeping more wickets out of Afghanistan’s hands.

Maxwell decided to finish the game in the 47th over when Australia needed 21 runs from 4 overs. Maxwell hit three consecutive HUGE SIXes off successive deliveries, later sending the fourth ball for FOUR before hitting it for SIX twice more!

Not only was this crucial to Australia’s win, but Maxwell himself achieved his double-century with this remarkable innings.

Afghanistan had three bowlers take two wickets each: Naveen-ul-Haq, Azmatullah Omarzai, and Rashid Khan. Glenn Maxwell was awarded the Player of the Match accolade.

Australia now has 12 points from eight matches with an improved net run rate of +0.398. It is sitting third behind India and South Africa. Afghanistan dropped two spots to sixth with 8 points and an NRR (-)0.338.

Ibrahim Zadran made history when he became the first Afghanistan batter to score a century at the World Cup and led his side to 291-5 against Australia. Zadran carried his bat through his innings and finished on 129 not out off 143 balls.

At 21 years of age, this 21-year-old opener faced 131 balls, hitting seven fours on his way to becoming the fifth one-day international century in 27 games played.

He reached the milestone via an unlikely route – an improvised single off Josh Hazlewood, which resulted in two runs after an attempt at throwing at the stumps was misfired.

Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood kicked off Australia’s proceedings.

Afghanistan won the toss and decided to bat, opting for Rahmanullah Gurbaz as their opener. Still, Zadran and Rahmat Shah put on an excellent partnership of 83 runs between them for the second wicket before Rahmat Shah was caught out for 44-ball 30 by Glenn Maxwell, with their score reading 121 runs in 25 overs.

Australians have made a fantastic turnaround after being defeated by India and South Africa in their initial two ICC World Cup 2023 matches.

Afghanistan has had an outstanding run at this year’s Cricket World Cup and currently stands 6th on the ICC World Cup points table with 8 points from 7 matches played.

Australia is in third place in the standings with 10 points from seven games. They need just one victory to clinch their last-four spot from their remaining games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh on November 11.

Afghanistan stands in sixth place in the table with four victories from seven matches and eight points secured from stunning wins against England, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and the Netherlands. Afghanistan must defeat Australia and South Africa on November 10 to reach the semifinals.

AUS vs AFG: Head-to-Head Records

Australia has faced Afghanistan in two World Cup matches so far and won both. Australia defeated Afghanistan by 275 runs in 2015; however, Afghanistan now has a completely different squad that may prove a worthy competitor against Australia.

All These Records Were Broken During Glenn Maxwell’s 201 Not Out In AUS vs AFG

Highlights of the Story

Australia was victorious at the 2023 ODI World Cup, becoming only third after India and South Africa to make the semifinals.

Glenn Maxwell of Australia made history when he led his side to a 3-wicket win against Afghanistan at the ODI World Cup 2023 in Mumbai on November 7.

Maxwell battled body pain and cramps to score 201 as Australia chased down 292 runs despite falling seven behind for 91 wickets, breaking several records in Australia and globally in his extraordinary innings.

Here is a list:

The Highest Individual Score In An ODI Run Chase

Maxwell has overtaken Pakistani Fakhar Zaman to claim the highest individual score ever achieved in an ODI match, scoring 201 runs during his chase that set a new ODI record – 193 were amassed against South Africa back in 2021 by Zaman. Maxwell became the first batsman ever to hit this mark while chasing, marking history.

The Highest Individual Score In Australia’s ODIs

Maxwell’s score of 201 runs not out, the highest individual score Australia ever scored in Mirpur in 2011, surpassed Shane Watson’s 185 runs not out.

The Highest Runs Scored By A Batter Ranked Three Or Below

Maxwell’s score of 201 is the highest for a batter ranked three or below. He surpassed Zimbabwe’s Charles Coventry, who scored 194 against Bangladesh in 2009.

The Highest Partnership At The Seventh Wicket Or Below

Maxwell and Patrick Cummins’s unbeaten partnership of 202 runs is now the highest for the seventh wicket in men’s ODI cricket, overthrowing Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid’s previous mark of 177 against New Zealand in 2015.

Maxwell told reporters after their match: “I was completely overwhelmed. Pat Cummins and I had such a fantastic time! In the coming days, I hope to think more about what went down, as well as regain some mobility in my calves and hamstring, which feels quite raw at this time.”

Australia was one of three teams, behind India and South Africa, that qualified for the semifinals of the ODI World Cup 2023 as the third team.
