3) Glenn Maxwell – 145* vs (Sri Lanka in 2016):
Now, this innings was no less than a career-defining one. Glenn Maxwell was number 3 on the list of highest individual scores in T20 International cricket. You must have always seen Maxwell come lower down the order at number 6 and act as a finisher. But in this innings in 2016, he got the opportunity to open the batting and it turned out to be one of the best innings he ever played.
He scored 145 in just 65 deliveries. Imagine a strike rate of 223.8 with 14 fours and 9 sixes. Australia posted highest T20I score ever thanks to Maxwell’s innings. Maxwell scored the fourth fastest century in the history of the game.
