With the arrival of the tour of India, the good news that has come out for the Australian team is that Glenn Maxwell can return to the team after being fit in the ODI series that will be played after the completion of the 4-match Test series. The Australian team has to start its tour against India with a Test match to be played in Nagpur from February 9.
After the end of this Test series, a 3-match ODI series will be played between both teams, the first match of which will be played on March 17. Glenn Maxwell injured his left leg while attending a friend’s birthday party in November of last year.
Due to this, he is continuously away from the cricket field till now. Meanwhile, while commentating on the Big Bash League, Maxwell said that it will probably last me a lifetime, it’s great that you get the chance to watch your teammates play, especially in India.
Speaking of Glenn Maxwell, this aggressive player, who has been out of the field for the last almost 3 months, can be seen playing for Team Victoria’s Sheffield Shield on February 9th. If Maxwell manages to prove his fitness then it can be considered very welcome news for Team Australia and captain Pat Cummins.
In the Indian conditions, Maxwell may prove to be a match winner for the team. Maxwell, who has so far played 14 ODIs for India, has scored 421 runs at an average of 30.07, including 3 half-century innings. Apart from this, Maxwell’s IPL playing experience can also prove very important for the Australian team during the ODI series.
