Riding on Glenn Maxwell’s explosive 145 off only 65 balls, Australia scored a record-breaking 263 for the loss of three wickets in the first T20I against Sri Lanka. Maxwell, who was left out of the ODI squad, made a stunning comeback by smacking a 49-ball hundred. The astonishing innings was studded with 14 fours and 9 maximums. He was ably supported by other batsmen. Warner and Maxwell started the innings brilliantly and reached fifty inside five overs.
Towards the end of the innings, Travis Head scored 45 off only 18 balls to help the Aussies reach the highest score in T20I. The record was previously held by Sri Lanka when they scored 260 against Kenya in 2007.
