Australia cricketer Glenn Maxwell highly praised his effort,” I didn’t know the game was on. But I later checked the scorecard and sent the picture of that to Finchy and said, ‘What is going on here? He is batting on a completely different planet! Look at everyone else’s scores and look at this bloke scoring 111 off 50.’,” Maxwell said while talking to ‘The Grade Cricketer’.
