201* Glenn Maxwell's score against Afghanistan. He is the first batter to score a double-century for Australia in men's ODIs. Shane Watson's 185* against Bangladesh in 2011 in Mirpur was the previous highest score for Australia.
1 Maxwell is the first batter to score a double-century during an ODI chase. The previous highest individual score in an ODI chase was 193 by Fakhar Zaman against South Africa in 2021.
1 Maxwell is also the first player to score an ODI double-ton while batting at No. 3 or lower. Charles Coventry's 194* against Bangladesh in 2009 was the previous highest ODI score by a non-opener. No player before Maxwell had scored a double-century while batting outside of top-four even in List A cricket.
3 Batters with double-hundreds at the men's ODI World Cup. Maxwell joins Chris Gayle (219 against Zimbabwe in 2015) and Martin Guptill (237* against West Indies in 2015).
202* Partnership between Maxwell and Pat Cummins, the highest for the seventh wicket or lower in men's ODIs. The previous highest was the 177-run stand between Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid for the seventh wicket against New Zealand in 2015 in Birmingham.
128 Balls Maxwell needed for his double-century. It is the second-fastest ODI double-ton, behind Ishan Kishan's 126-ball effort against Bangladesh in December last year.
202 Runs added by Australia after the fall of their seventh wicket, the most by any team in an ODI innings. The previous most runs scored after the fall of the seventh wicket were 196 by the Africa XI against the Asia XI in 2007.
179 Runs contributed by Maxwell during his unbeaten 202-run stand with Cummins for the eighth wicket. Cummins scored 12 off the 68 balls he faced, while another 11 runs came through extras. Maxwell's contribution of 88.61% is the highest by a batter in a century stand in men's ODIs (where data is available). Maxwell bettered his own contribution of 88.35% during his 103-run stand with Cummins against Netherlands in Delhi. He made 91 of those runs.
177 Difference between Maxwell's score (201*) and the second-highest score in Australia's innings (Mitchell Marsh's 24). Only twice has there been a bigger difference between the two top scores in an ODI innings - 198 in favour of Rohit Sharma when he scored 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014 and 195 in favour of Guptill against West Indies during his 237* in 2015.
0.2 Australia's win percentage according to ESPNcricinfo's forecaster after 26.5 overs, when they were 136 for 7 and still needed 156 more at 6.73 per over.
292 The target chased by Australia against Afghanistan. It is their highest at the men's ODI World Cup. Their previous highest successful chase was 287 against New Zealand in the quarter-final of the 1996 edition in Chennai.
1 Ibrahim Zadran is the first batter to score a century for Afghanistan at the ODI World Cup. The previous highest score was 96 by Samiullah Shinwari against Scotland in 2015. Ibrahim is also the fourth youngest batter to score a century in the men's ODI World Cup.
9.17 Bowling average in the first ten overs at Wankhede stadium in the second innings during this World Cup. The bowlers have picked up 17 wickets in four matches in the second innings but only five at 40.80 during the first innings during the first ten overs.
