Cricket news - I think of wins over scoring hundreds - Maxwell

"I'm not going to look back on my career when I'm done and think about all the hundreds I've missed" - Maxwell

On Friday (March 29), against Pakistan, Glenn Maxwell was dismissed for the fifth time in 90s in ODIs. However, Maxwell's 82-ball 98 proved to be the decisive factor in powering Australia to a competitive total as they clinched a tense six-run victory.

The aggressive batsman noted that he doesn't care too much about milestones and rather aims to help his team win more matches. "I'm not going to look back on my career when I'm done and think about all the hundreds I've missed. I'm going to think about the wins we had," the all rounder said.

At one point of time, the visitors were struggling at 140 for 5, but the duo of Alex Carey and Maxwell stitched a stand of 134 to shore up Australia's batting. In the final over, Maxwell also attempted to pinch a couple of runs but was run out in the process. It gave an indicator about the middle order batsman putting the team first over an individual milestone.

"It would have been nice to get a hundred but I was really happy with the way I played today. To put that partnership on with Carey, to get us to a total we thought we could defend - I was really proud of the way I went about it. The hundred doesn't really matter too much to me.

"I've made a lot of mistakes as a middle-order batter (in the past) and not quite made it to the time when I can go (attack). It was nice to be there for the back end and delay the bigger hitting until a little bit later when we felt like we could comfortably get to a total we could defend.

"The last two games I've come in a bit earlier when we've lost a few wickets back to back and there's been a little bit of pressure on when I've gone out. It's actually been nice to get through that, be able to get myself in and not just go out and play a cameo knock in the last 10 overs," he added.

Meanwhile, Australia continued their winning streak in ODIs by winning their seventh successive game.
