After Mitch Marsh's 60-ball century for the Perth Scorchers the night before, Melbourne Stars captain Glenn Maxwell outshines himself with a breathtaking career first century against the Sydney Sixers.

Sixers Chris Jordan and Steve O' Keefe were the standout bowlers, both surrendering 24 runs and taking one wicket in their four overs. Aaron Finch, a member of Maxwell's national squad, praised the power hitter, describing the innings as 'brutal' and 'phenomenal hitting.'

After three early Stars wickets, the 33-year-old skipper delivered the perfect captain's hit. Maxwell scored 103 from just 57 balls, including 12 fours and three sixes in a total of 5-177.

Finch told Fox Cricket that Maxwell was given an opportunity on 15, and he took advantage of it. He said that Maxwell scored all around the field and he had a strong leg-side. He added that however, Maxwell continued to use the off-side, especially late in the innings.

Finch commented that that was just “phenomenal hitting”. Finch said that he is very deadly and ruthless on an attack when batting instinctively. He added that he is “so jealous” of cricketers like Maxwell.

Brad Haddin questioned how to stop Maxwell curiously after he fired a switch-hit four in the 1990s. Brendon Julian answered he is unstoppable. Haddin commented further that Maxwell had fantastic batting, a brilliant example of creativity and it is a mastery of the highest order. He also said that Maxwell had probably is the best T20 hundred to date.

Supporters and critics alike were enthralled by Maxwell's incredible performance on Twitter. Videos and comments all praised Maxwell for his achievements.

Nevertheless, Maxwell's outstanding performance with the bat was overshadowed by Josh Philippe's unbeaten 99, as the Sixers successfully chased down the target in the final over. Philippe, who was brought in to open the batting, maintained his bat and guided his team to a spectacular victory with two balls to spare and seven wickets in hand. During the triumphant pursuit, the wicketkeeper-batter hit 11 fours and two sixes.
