Lauding the incredible display of batting from the Australian, Sehwag, who is known for his witty oneliners, termed the centurion's effort as an 'Act of God'.

The Nawab of Najafgarh, who is still considered as one of the most explosive openers in the game, wrote on his Twitter handle that watching Maxwell bat felt as if 'some divine spirit entered Maxwell'.

"Raina looked good in his quickfire 50,but Mata to Maxwell me aa gayin.What an innings after being dropped frm ODI team #AusVSL #KararaJawab," tweeted Sehwag.
