Glenn Maxwell says he will will continue riding a brilliant run of career-best form after another match-winning knock to down the Windies on Sunday night.
A remarkable 120 not out off 55 balls powered the Aussies to 4-241 at the Adelaide Oval and a subsequent 34-run win over the West Indies.
Maxwell blasted eight sixes and 12 fours en route to a 50-ball century that amazed the 19,891 in attendance and led Australia to its fourth-highest T20I total in history.
The enigmatic 35-year-old has hit four centuries (including a double century) in his last nine white-ball innings and looms as a crucial piece of the T20 World Cup later this year.
Maxwell says he’s simply riding the highs.
“I feel really comfortable in this format,” Maxwell told Fox at the post-match presentation.
“I think over the last probably 18 months I've felt really good about my batting and really good about my game. I feel clear when I'm out in the middle. The game can sometimes feel nice and simple when you're out there and at other times you nick a couple of early and all of a sudden becomes really difficult. So I think while I'm going well I'm just trying to ride that as much as I possibly can and keep doing the same things.”
The exquisite knock brought up Maxwell’s fifth T20I ton, equalling the record with India’s Rohit Sharma, while it’s also the second-highest T20I score for a batter coming in at no.4 or lower.
Australia secured a series win over the Windies with the triumph, with the third T20I and the tourists’ final game on Aussie shores this summer to be played on Tuesday night in Perth.
