Glenn Maxwell has decided not to play in next season of the IPL to be regular in the Australia Test squad.
Almost all cricketers in Australia have the dream of playing Test cricket for the national team. Glenn Maxwell is known as a short version cricketer, but he is no exception. McMwell wants to be regular in the Test squad. And so the Australian all-rounder has decided not to play next season in the IPL.
Maxwell will prepare himself instead of playing in the English county cricket. Lancashire plays for the whole season, in three editions. The 30-year-old hard-hitter test debut five years ago. Only 7 Tests played at this time! In the past five years, the addition of Maxwell’s name has added 87 ODIs and 57 T20s. He played last Test against Bangladesh last year against Bangladesh. Since then Maxwell was overlooked in the Test squad Maxwell surely feels bad during the Australia-India Test series at home.
Maxwell made such a difficult decision. It is not easy to play in the IPL or the cash-for-money tournament, especially in the Twenty20 season. Maxwell also said it was difficult to make a decision. But I had to take, ‘I still want to play Test cricket. And so it was not easy to decide to play in next season of the IPL. The issue of not being able to play Test is still jealous in my heart. I certainly want to return to the team and believe that I have the ability to give things to the Australia Test team.
