“Maxwell’s Heroic 201 Not Out Steers Australia to World Cup Semi-Finals Against Afghanistan”

In a gripping contest of the World Cup 2023, Australia clinched a three-wicket victory over Afghanistan. The match was highlighted by Glenn Maxwell’s extraordinary unbeaten 201, rescuing Australia from a precarious position of 91/7 to chase down Afghanistan’s target of 292 runs. Maxwell’s innings included a rapid century off 76 balls, reflecting his role as a lone warrior in the Australian lineup. His partnership with captain Pat Cummins was crucial in stabilizing the Australian chase.

Afghanistan, after opting to bat first, had set a solid foundation thanks to Ibrahim Zadran’s landmark century—the first by an Afghan player in a World Cup ODI—helping his team post a competitive total of 291/5. Despite the initial batting success, Afghanistan could not prevent the Australian resurgence led by Maxwell, which eventually led Australia to secure their place in the semi-finals against South Africa.
