During the post-match ceremony, Maxi was asked how he felt physically after the draining knock, he said:

“Terrific. I’m stoked,” He added: “Obviously, it was quite hot when we were fielding. I didn’t do much high-intensity training in the heat and it got to me. It was good to stick out till the end.”

Not too much to be honest (plans at 49 for 4). Just stick to our batting plans. I was trying to be positive and take them on. If I had defended all the way, I would have lost my wicket. That lbw call as well and I decided to go after the bowling,”
