Australia batting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell who is seen as a limited-overs specialist player in the team has said that he has been in constant touch with the selectors over his return to the longest format of the game and is ready to play red-ball cricket.
Glenn Maxwell made his Test debut in 2013 against India and he last played Test cricket for Australia in 2017 against Bangladesh. So far he has scored 339 Test runs at an average of 26.07, including a century against India in Ranchi. Also, he last played first-class cricket in October 2019 for his state Victoria.
Meanwhile, Glenn Maxwell has said that there are realistic chances of him making a comeback in the longest format of the game. He added that he has been working a lot on “different techniques for different formats”.
“It’s definitely realistic. I think I am probably playing as well as ever have at the moment. I feel really good about my game. I have been able to work on different techniques for different formats, which has really helped going forward.
“I have been in constant contact with selectors and they have been really clear about if opportunities do pop up then I am ready for red ball,” Maxwell was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
Next year Is Obviously A Heavy Sub-continent Tour Year, There Could Be Opportunities – Glenn Maxwell
Star Australian cricketer Maxwell said that Australia will do a heavy sub-continent tour next year and with players going in and out he might get an opportunity in the Australia Test playing XI so he will have to be ready for that.
“Next year is obviously a heavy sub-continent tour year. There could be opportunities with guys coming in and out. There is a lot of cricket next year, you don’t want to burn guys out through the season so there could be a host of changes. So, I have to make sure I am playing well when they pick those squads in any format,” he asserted.
