The Australian all- rounder Maxwell who has been wrapped with the mask for playing only the shorter version of the game was in a very good touch during the 3rd test at Ranchi.


On the end of the 1st days play he closed up his innings at 82 and then came up fresh the nest day to go for a ton and this innings will definitely be a memorable one in his career, it was for sure an emotional moment for him and also for his team


He supported his team to go past 400 runs and are in a good position to defend whatever they have got and will resume the match at a happy node.


Kim Hughes, the former Australian captain, headlined the verbal bashing of Maxwell. "I mean his effort was diabolical," Hughes said on Perth radio at the time. "He's alright in the Twenty20, absolutely, but he shouldn't even be considered for anything else."


Since then, he has been banished into Test wilderness but his reputation as being proficient against spin coupled with an ability to bowl handy offbreaks meant Maxwell earned a spot on the tour of India. An injury to struggling all-rounder Mitchell Marsh paved the way for a long-awaited recall and the first Test ton.



"To get back in the side in the first place was something that I really held close to my heart," Maxwell admitted. "I was so happy to be able to walk back on the field with the Australian Test team with the Baggy Green cap on and I was so filled with joy when I got told I had the opportunity to do that again.



"Suppose I just didn't really want to waste the opportunity. I didn't want to make it my last Test, that's for sure," he added. "Just wanted to make it count ... every opportunity I get from now on."
