Cricket News: IND vs AUS 3rd T20 Twitter Reactions: Glenn Maxwell hits 104 (48) after Ruturaj Gaikwad century | Fans react to Maxwell magic at Guwahati

Glenn Maxwell has done it again. No game is over while he is at the crease. A few weeks after his remarkable 201* to seal the comeback of all comebacks against Afghanistan in the World Cup, Maxwell was at it again, this time in Guwahati to seal an improbable victory in the third T20I against India.

Australia needed 43 off the final 12 balls to seal an unlikely win. They earlier needed 65 off the final four overs and 78 off the final five. Such numbers are almost always too much for chasing teams to overcome. But, it’s Glenn Maxwell. After Marcus Stoinis struggled and Tim David was dismissed first ball, Maxwell took over to smash 56 off his next 24 balls to seal a memorable win alongside a key contribution from captain Matthew Wade.

Maxwell smashed 6, 4, 4, 4 off Prasidh Krishna to win the game off the final delivery. In the process, he equalled Rohit Sharma’s record of the most centuries in T20 Internationals (4). He also equalled the record for the fastest T20I ton by an Australian, going level with Josh Inglis (this series) and Aaron Finch (2013).

India will be wondering how they didn’t seal the win. They were well ahead in the game from the time Ruturaj Gaikwad went on a rampage, striking the first century for India against Australia in T20Is. It was the classiest 57-ball 123* you’ll see and he may have went to bed wondering how he could produce such a performance and not win player of the match or the game itself.

Ruturaj Gaikwad also had a night to remember with 123* off 57 balls
