Maxwell hoping for a comeback soon
Australia’s destructive right handed batsman and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell believes that there is lot more to come from him in the years ahead after getting dropped from the Test squad for Pakistan Test series.
Couple of days ago Cricket Australia announced the 15 men squad for the upcoming two match Test series against Pakistan which will begin at the start of October.
Surprisingly Australia’s one of the senior players Glenn Maxwell was been left out in the squad. Even though he didn’t have a good run in recent series, he will be a key player in team in the absence of their senior players David Warner and Steve Smith who are facing one year ban for ball tampering.
Earlier Australia’s former captain Ricky Ponting has expressed his frustration over the exclusion of Maxwell from the squad. Now Glenn Maxwell has came up with a much more positive thought. He believes that he will deliver more in the upcoming days.
“I feel like I’ve still got some really good cricket years ahead of me.”
Selectors have pointed that the all-rounder has to score some big knocks in first class cricket to retain his place in squad. The all-rounder is also hoping to have a good run in future.
“Now I just need to make more runs. Hopefully I can pile on enough runs this summer to keep pushing my case forward. I had a pretty good year last year, so now I’ve just got to have another good year this year and hope selections go my way at some stage.
If I continue to play the way I have been in the last 12 months, the selections will eventually go my way. I feel like I’m getting better and better. Hopefully this is another year where I can prove people wrong and put a lot of runs on the board.”
He further added that he didn’t play any first class cricket for last couple of months. “I had a few offers to play county cricket in England and they were initially knocked back with an opportunity to go and play in India in the A series.
To get told not to play in the A series and have a rest, and I was understanding of that and their reasoning behind that … I was hoping that was a positive note to go to Dubai (to play Pakistan). But obviously that wasn’t the case.”
