Yousuf hails Maxwell on playing for Pakistan

Maxwell smashed his second World Cup 2023 century

Australia’s Glenn Maxwell has put up a stunning show against Afghanistan in a crucial ICC World Cup 2023 fixture against Afghanistan.

After being 91/7 in chase of 292, Maxwell smashed his second World Cup 2023 century and is now close to securing a win with a confirmed semi-final spot.

Meanwhile, former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf credited Maxwell as Australia’s win will help Pakistan since they have a chance of finishing in the final four.

“Maxwell playing for Pakistan here? Australia’s win definitely helps Pakistan. Great partnership between these two [Maxwell and Cummins],” Yousuf wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

On the other hand, he also hailed Afghanistan for putting a great fight in the tournament and believes they are still in the game.

“Credit to Afghanistan as well as they played exceptionally well so far in this tournament & they won’t let this match go. Good game so far,” he added.

It must be noted that Maxwell became the first player to score 2 centuries in a WC edition batting at No. 5 or lower. He is also the only batter to score three centuries batting at No.5 or lower.
