Stats: Glenn Maxwell Breaks Records in an Unforgettable Comeback Victory, ICC World Cup 2023

Glenn Maxwell 201*

Glenn Maxwell’s remarkable innings of 201* stands as the highest individual run tally in an ODI run-chase. This incredible feat not only ranks as the highest for a non-opening batsman but also establishes a new record in the men’s ODI format for Australia. Additionally, it marks the 11th instance of a double hundred in ODIs and the third in World Cup history. The previous record for the highest score by a batsman batting at number 6 or lower in ODIs was Kapil Dev’s iconic 175* against Zimbabwe during the 1983 World Cup at Tunbridge Wells.
