Australia batsman Glenn Maxwell has expressed his unhappiness over the light show which took place during the World Cup match against the Netherlands, in which the right handed batsman scored the fastest century in the history of the tournament, bringing up his triple figure mark in only 40 balls. 

Australia hammered the Netherlands by a record margin of 309 runs to better their own record of highest win for any team in World Cup history by the margin of friends on Wednesday, after the piled up a huge total of 399/8 in their 50 overs bowling out the touch for just 90 runs in 21 overs.

As he was putting the Netherlands bowling attack to sword at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi, Glenn Maxwell also witnessed a dazzling light show which saw the flood lights being turned off for a period of time and then being turned on back again. 

According to the right-handed batsman Glenn Maxwell, it is difficult for cricketers to adjust as they are totally focused on the proceedings on the play and not on what is happening elsewhere.

“Well, I had something like that light show happen at Perth Stadium during a Big Bash game. And I just felt like it gave me shocking headaches and it takes me a while for my eyes to readjust and I just think it’s the dumbest idea for cricketers,”

said Glenn Maxwell after Australia recorded a huge win by 309 runs to improve their net run rate in the points table and inch ahead of Pakistan.

“Yeah, not great. I was sitting in the changing room and I didn’t really want to bat, which is a bit different than the last game where I was way too eager to get out there,”

Maxwell added. 

Glenn Maxwell revealed that he did not get enough sleep on the previous night since his family had arrived in India and he was also struggling with the hot and humid weather in the country.

“But yeah, I was a little bit more chilled when I got out there. Didn’t have many high hopes, I think. But I’ve been pretty cooked the last couple of days. Coincided with the sleepless night last night with the family over,”

said Glenn Maxwell.

Australia’s victory by 309 runs has given them a huge boost in terms of net run rate even though they Are pleased at the fourth spot in the points table for the World Cup. It must be remembered that the teams finishing in the top four will be making it to the semi-final stage while the rest six will be crashing out, which includes Pakistan, who have been playing absolutely poor cricket in this World Cup.

Pakistan have lost all three of their last matches in horrendous manner and are staring at an early exit from the World Cup unless the record wins in all of the remaining four matches, which includes taking on a rampant South Africa, a hard England as well as a strong New Zealand side alongside a tricky match which they will play against Asian rivals Bangladesh.
