Although David Warner achieved his record-breaking sixth World Cup century for Australia against the Netherlands, scoring 104 runs off 93 balls, he did not receive the Player of the Match award.
The award was given to his teammate Glenn Maxwell, who scored the fastest century in ODI World Cup history (40 balls), concluding with 106 runs off 44 balls. Similar to Warner, Maxwell also made a significant impact in the field by executing the run-out of Dutch opener Vikramjit Singh in the sixth over.
