Glenn Maxwell hits stunning faster-ever World Cup Century

Glenn Maxwell’s remark­able bat­ting per­for­mance came to a thrilling con­clu­sion dur­ing the last over of the match, with his score stand­ing at 106 runs from a mere 44 balls. His explo­sive innings fea­tured nine bound­aries and eight max­i­mums.

In a tru­ly breath­tak­ing dis­play, Maxwell achieved his cen­tu­ry with one of those eight colos­sal six­es, reach­ing this mile­stone in just 40 deliv­er­ies. This extra­or­di­nary feat set a new bench­mark for the fastest hun­dred in the his­to­ry of Men’s Crick­et World Cup. In fact, Maxwell did­n’t just break the pre­vi­ous record; he shat­tered it by out­pac­ing the for­mer record hold­er, Aiden Markram, who accom­plished this feat against Sri Lan­ka ear­li­er in the same tour­na­ment, by an astound­ing nine balls. Notably, Markram’s record-break­ing cen­tu­ry also took place in Del­hi, break­ing a record that had been stand­ing since Kevin O’Brien’s 50-ball cen­tu­ry against Eng­land in 2011.

Maxwell’s sen­sa­tion­al per­for­mance goes down in his­to­ry as the fastest cen­tu­ry ever scored by an Aus­tralian male crick­eter in One Day Inter­na­tion­al (ODI) crick­et. It ranks as the fourth fastest cen­tu­ry of all time, with AB de Vil­liers’ record-set­ting 31-ball cen­tu­ry against the West Indies in 2015 still hold­ing the top spot.

The 35-year-old crick­eter reached his half-cen­tu­ry in just 27 deliv­er­ies and then accel­er­at­ed in a spec­tac­u­lar man­ner, requir­ing only 13 more balls to reach the three-fig­ure mark.

Nether­lands bowler Bas de Leede endured the brunt of Maxwell’s relent­less assault, con­ced­ing 115 runs in his ten overs, mark­ing the most expen­sive bowl­ing fig­ures in the his­to­ry of men’s ODI crick­et.

The major­i­ty of Maxwell’s bril­liant innings unfold­ed with cap­tain Pat Cum­mins as his part­ner in the mid­dle. The sta­tis­tics of their part­ner­ship are noth­ing short of extra­or­di­nary. Togeth­er, they accu­mu­lat­ed 103 runs from 44 balls. Cum­mins, fac­ing just eight deliv­er­ies dur­ing this part­ner­ship, man­aged to score eight runs, while in the same time­frame, Maxwell thun­dered his way to 91 runs from 36 deliv­er­ies.

This mag­nif­i­cent effort from the num­ber six bats­man pro­pelled Aus­tralia to a for­mi­da­ble total of 399/8.
