‘It gave me shocking headaches, dumbest idea’: Glenn Maxwell slams light show

Glen Maxwell Glenn Maxwell helped Australia defeat the Netherlands by 309 runs on Wednesday with a 40-ball century, which is the fastest century ever at the Cricket World Cup. Maxwell led Australia to 399-8 (50 overs) with 106 runs off just 44 balls, smacking nine fours and eight massive sixes. David Warner, who achieved his 22nd one-day international century overall and his second consecutive hundred when he came in to bat in the 39th over, was overshadowed by Maxwell's achievement. But Maxwell was upset about the mid-match light and sound spectacle after the game, calling it "the dumbest idea" and said it gives him "shocking headaches." “Well, I had something like that light show happen at Perth Stadium during a Big Bash game.

It would turn out to be both his signature and a boost to his self-esteem. Before launching the switch shot to reroute a Paul van Meekeren full ball over point for four...

‘A lot needs to go right’: Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith on 400-odd totals in ODIs

Glen Maxwell Even if Australia's all-around dominance helped them destroy the Netherlands in their World Cup match on Wednesday, its best batters still think that 400-plus runs in one-day international cricket are still the exception rather than the rule. The former world champions won spectacularly in New Delhi, scoring a massive 399 and taking 10 wickets for just 90 runs. Although there is a lot of talk about how T20 cricket is having an increasing impact on 50-over cricket, Glenn Maxwell and Steve Smith stated that factors such as field conditions, opposition bowling, and a lucky day at bat all contribute to reaching the 400-run mark in 50 overs. After the game, Smith claimed that the top order's performance in managing the middle overs and creating a foundation for those ...
