Maxwell said on record century
After his record-equalling fifth T20I century in the second T20I against West Indies, Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell revealed that he woke up with the feeling that he was going to score a century and he did not expect it. 'The Big Show' Maxwell's record-breaking performance in white-ball cricket continued and with the help of his century, Australia defeated the West Indies by 34 runs in Adelaide and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. "I woke up this morning and I had a strange feeling," Maxwell (Glenn Maxwell on Record T20 Century) said after equaling Indian captain Rohit Sharma's record of T20 centuries, as quoted by cricket.com.au.
"I don't get this opportunity very often and especially batting in the middle order, you don't get this opportunity very often, but I had a good look at their (West Indies) attack in the last game in Hobart and I felt like I could get a century. Got it, liked what they were bowling." Short boundaries along the ground and another good wicket. So I felt like I missed it again and I said 'You know what, I can't let that happen forever.'
"When I arrived (at Adelaide Oval) I said, 'I feel like someone's going to score a century tonight' and when I woke up this morning I felt like I was going to score a century" And the timing was probably perfect Maxwell said previous plans to take his parents to Adelaide to see him in action and tour the Barossa Valley were scrapped. The most recent of these was in November 2022, when Maxwell attended a friend's party He broke his fibula after a freak accident. But this time, he was able to play in front of his parents and he had specifically requested the selectors to let him play the game as his parents wanted to watch him live from the stadium. He was one to watch in action. Initially, he was not supposed to play but the selectors and team management agreed to his request.
"Travels to Adelaide have been a little different for our family," Maxwell said. “The last time they tried to book a trip to Adelaide I broke my leg, and while I was lying on the floor at my friend's house I called my mom and told her she probably had to cancel her trip to Adelaide. "It should be done. She was one of the first trip phone calls I made when I was in a little pain." "Originally I wasn't supposed to play tonight, and I was going to rest (but) I talked to him about it (said) 'I wouldn't mind playing, my family is going to be here'. So The Australian team management changed their mind which was good."
He concluded, "I just thought 'imagine if I had been rested for this game, he would have made the effort to come here', but he had the trip to Barossa tomorrow so he is very happy."
