The Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell stunned the Afghanistan cricket team by playing a sensational innings of 201 not out and made his team win a match which was very much in control of Afghanistan.
After winning the toss, Afghanistan chose to bat first and it scored 291/5 with the help of the century knock by Ibrahim Zadran (129*). Afghanistan bowlers were also on fire as they dismissed 7 Australian batters at the score of 91 by the 19th over. However, Glenn Maxwell was in no mood to give up despite the fact that he was having cramps in his leg and was experiencing a lot of pain. Glenn Maxwell’s warrior innings helped his team in winning the match with 3 wickets and 19 balls remaining in their innings.
It won’t be wrong to say that Glenn Maxwell won this match alone for Australia and this innings will go down in the history as one of the greatest ODI innings of all times.

Winning this match was very important for Australia otherwise it would have been out of the race of semi-finals.
