Australian batter Glenn Maxwell has confirmed that his wedding dates clash with Australia’s tour of Pakistan and he will therefore have to skip the series altogether.

In addition, Maxwell could also miss the beginning few matches of the IPL 2022 season. Although the start date for the cash-rich league hasn’t been confirmed yet, Maxwell could be out for early April matches.

Originally when I organised the dates with CA there was a two-week gap where I could potentially have it. So when I sorted that out I was pretty happy that I wasn’t going to be missing in any series.

And then I came to the [CA] contract meeting midway through last year and they said well this is [when] the Pakistan series [is on] and I thought well obviously that’s changed since the last conversation we had,” Maxwell explained to Fox Sports.

Glenn Maxwell’s quickfire knock seals T20I series against Sri Lanka

The third T20I between Australia and Sri Lanka was played at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Tuesday. Sri Lanka needed a win to stay alive in the series having lost the first two matches.

Batting first, they put up an under-par total of 121/6 on the board courtesy of some tight bowling from the Aussies. Player of the Match, Kane Richardson was the pick of the bowlers, ending with figures of 3/21 in four overs.

In response, Australia got off to a shaky start as they lost Ben McDermott off the very first ball of the innings. The run-chase was stabilized soon after and 26-ball 39 from Maxwell sealed the deal for the hosts. They secure the series 3-0 with two games to go.
