The Australian all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell reached to an all-time low in his cricketing career last year. So much so, he struggled to score runs before being ignored for the selection.
The flamboyant cricketer Maxwell was asked by the then Australian skipper, Steven Smith to improve his overall game. He was suggested to follow his fitness strictly and to train harder to get ample focus on the game.
In May, Maxwell got dropped from the distinct squads. This raises doubt on his plans whether Australian chief coach Justin Langer still has an interest in him or not over future Test plans.
In the forthcoming Test Series against Pakistan at the United Arab Emirates (UK), the batting all-rounder is hopeful to get a call on his tour.
Failed to deliver big, Maxwell further hopes that he will be able to cement in the Australian Team this time.
“I’ve been to India 16 or 17 times now. So it’s not a place where they (selectors) need to see me play. They’ve seen me play over there enough,” Maxwell toldSEN’s Whateley.
“Obviously [I’ve] had a bit of success over there in the Test series in India last year, so it’s not something that’s hugely foreign to me. Hopefully, that holds me in good stead when it comes time for selection for the Dubai trip,” he said.
Omission from Australia A-Team:
The 29-year old, Glenn Maxwell said he did not get any indication from the management yet that he will be part against Pakistan.
However, a ray of hope got generated when he saw his name absent in Australia A-Team.
“There has been a lot of positive reinforcement that I didn’t need to go on that Aussie A tour,” he said. “I felt confident walking away from that they’ve given me an opportunity to prepare for that Test tour [against Pakistan], whether or not I’m picked on it, that’s another outcome.”
In one of the most controversial series earlier, Maxwell was not part of the squad against South Africa.
