Maxwell ton fires Aus to series sweep

Glenn Maxwell hit a breathtaking century to single-handedly lead Australia to a 2-0 series sweep over India with their seven-wicket win in the second Twenty20 international on Wednesday.

Maxwell smashed 113 off 55 balls as the tourists chased down their target of 191 with two balls to spare at Bangalore's M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Maxwell's knock laced with 7 fours and 9 sixes eclipsed Indian skipper Virat Kohli's 72 off 38 balls that lifted the hosts to 190 for four after being put into bat first.

SCORES IN BRIEF

INDIA: 190 for 4 in 20 overs (Rahul 47, Kohli 72 not out, Dhoni 40; Behrendorff 1-17, Short 1-29)

AUSTRALIA: 194 for 3 in 19.4 overs (Maxwell 113 not out, Short 40; Shankar 2-38)

Result: Australia won by 7 wickets and took the series 2-0
