Glenn Maxwell Equals Rohit Sharma’s Record in T20Is

Glenn Maxwell has matched the record set by India’s Rohit Sharma for the most centuries in T20I cricket, with both players now having five centuries to their name.

Maxwell achieved this feat during the second T20I match against the West Indies on February 11, 2024, where he scored an impressive 120 runs. His century came in just 55 balls, with 12 boundaries and 8 sixes, helping Australia reach a total of 241/4. His runs came at a strike rate of 218.88.

Maxwell’s stellar performance included hitting a six off Akeal Hosein in the eighth over and adding two more in the following overs. He reached his fifty in just 25 balls and subsequently reached his century in 25 balls too, as Australia crossed the 200-run mark with ease. In a truly dominant display, Maxwell finished with two fours and a six off Andre Russell in the final over. With this win, Australia took a 2-0 lead in the three-match series, ensuring another series victory at home.

In the list of players with the most T20I centuries, Maxwell and Rohit are now followed by Suryakumar Yadav, the top-ranked T20I batsman in the world, who has scored four centuries in 60 matches for India since his T20I debut in March 2021. It is very possible for us to Suryakumar Yadav to soon match shoulder-to-shoulder with these two hard-hitting legends in his next century.

Previously, during his 100th T20I match on November 28, 2023, against India in Guwahati, Maxwell also scored a century, equalling Rohit’s record at the time. However, Rohit reclaimed the top spot on January 17, 2024, when he scored his fifth T20I century against Afghanistan in Bengaluru.
