Maxwell looking for batting longer periods
In Bangladesh, like other subcontinent neighbors, the wickets are typically prepared as spin friendly, assisting home bowlers. With a well-equipped spin department, the Tigers are also hoping to cliché the Aussie batsmen with traps of jittery spin bowling.
One of the clean hitters of modern cricket, Glenn Maxwell also admitted the wickets would be a big factor while they face the home team.
“The wickets here are similar to what we faced in Darwin where it was perfect. We put extreme conditions in Darwin with the wickets where we made it ridiculously tough to bat on and guys tested themselves really well during that week. I think the guys are more than well equipped to handle whatever comes their way in the first Test,” he explained.
“I don’t think I will change too much from what I did in India. I thought I had really good plans during the Test series against them. I will employ probably something similar, basically backing my defense and trying to revolve my game around that. It is basically going to be batting long periods of time and making sure that when we do bat those long periods of time we are making big hundreds,” he said.
“I wouldn’t say settled. It was a nice feeling to get that hundred. You still have a long way to go before you cement your spot in the Australia cricket team. I know that I have got to be relentless in my performance and consistency. I have to make sure contributing in all areas of the game. I will be hoping to nail that spot as quick and for as long as I can,” the 28-year old concluded.
