Glenn Maxwell’s double hundred reminds of Kapil Dev in 1983, What did Shastri-Tendulkar say?

New Delhi: Australia’s star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell made history by scoring a double hundred in the World Cup 2023. Maxwell scored an unbeaten 201 in the 39th match of the Cricket World Cup 2023 against Afghanistan to give his team a thrilling victory. With this double century, he also shattered Kapil’s record. Some have described his innings as the best in ODI cricket and some have described Kapil Dev’s 175-run innings. Let’s know the reactions of the veterans after Maxwell’s storm.

Former India cricketer Ravi Shastri said on Maxwell’s innings, “Fantastic, it reminded me of Kapil in 1983.” Because the India-Zimbabwe match in the 1983 World Cup was not recorded. That’s why people can’t see it even today. Kapil Dev played an innings against Zimbabwe. Only a few people saw him in the stadium. Ravi Shastri was one of them. From this tweet of Shastri, it can be understood that Kapil must have played the same innings as Maxwell 40 years ago.

Sachin Tendulkar also came out in praise of Maxwell. “From the highest pressure to great performance,” he said of Maxwell after praising Afghanistan’s Ibrahim Zadran. This is the best ODI innings I have seen in my life.

Venkatesh Prasad wrote, “Probably one of the greatest ODI innings seen. Glenn Maxwell has been unbelievable. The highest individual score in run-chase, even when no Australian player could cross the 24-mark. The double century is unbelievable.

Legendary cricketer VVS Laxman wrote, “One of the finest individual performances on the cricket field. It’s one of the greatest innings ever. A great lesson to never give up. It was quite incredible. “
