Maxwell, known for his aggressive style, seized the opportunity, punishing Afghanistan with an onslaught of 21 fours and six sixes. Remarkably, he managed this feat despite facing physical challenges, including cramps. The game-changing partnership between Maxwell and skipper Pat Cummins not only secured victory for Australia but also propelled them into the semifinals.

However, despite Maxwell's spectacular performance, he expressed no sympathy for Mujeeb Ur Rahman. In a podcast, 'Club Prairie Fire,' featuring Michael Vaughan and Adam Gilchrist, Maxwell revealed, "I do not feel any sympathy for him because I feel like I have done that a lot of times." Drawing from his own experiences of missed opportunities, Maxwell acknowledged that cricket can be unforgiving, and players must capitalize on the chances presented to them.
