Maxwell’s Statement on Fastest Century Record:

Glenn Maxwell, the prodigious batsman from Australia, recently opened up about his desire to set the fastest century record in One Day Internationals (ODIs). His statement came on the heels of an explosive century he made in a mere 40 balls against the Netherlands. Maxwell expressed, “I am well aware of this record, and it’s my ambition to etch my name beside it.”

Electrifying Performance Against the Netherlands:

AUS vs NED: The Australian batsman showcased an awe-inspiring display of cricketing prowess in the match against the Netherlands. With a score of 106 runs from just 44 balls, including 9 boundaries and 8 sixes, Maxwell’s inning was nothing short of legendary. His performance, marked by a century off 40 balls, clearly emphasized his potential to set the much-discussed record.

Maxwell Reflects on His Past and Aspirations:

In a post-match press conference, Maxwell candidly discussed his aspiration for the record. He stated, “I’ve always found the records for fastest half-century and century quite fascinating. It would indeed be an honor to hold these records.” Recounting his past, Maxwell reminisced about his 2015 performance against Afghanistan where he had scored an impressive 88 runs off 37 balls. “I remember telling myself that one of the upcoming deliveries would sail straight over the cover. And in my recollection, I achieved my quickest century in the very next game,” Maxwell said. He emphasized that he had previously been on the brink of breaking the record.
