Glenn Maxwell has been omitted from the Australian One day squad for the upcoming ODI series against England. Glenn’s omission was all due to his recent poor form. Australian selector Trevor Hohns stated it is the lack of form of Maxwell that is responsible for his exclusion from the national team.
Australian skipper Steve Smith also pointed over Maxwell and said Maxwell needs to train in a smarter way to regain his spot in the team. This advice by Steve Smith was taken by Glenn Maxwell very seriously.
Steve Smith earlier pointed that Maxwell needs to train smartly. “Just looking at the way he trains, I think he could train a little bit smarter,” said Smith. “If he keeps his head switched on and trains really well and focuses on basic things probably more than the expansive things then I think that will help him have his consistency,” Smith had earlier added.
I will meet Steve Smith to address the things
Responding to the statements of Steve Smith, Maxwell said he will personally meet Australian skipper to address and sort out the statements. “I’ll address those comments with Steven personally, I’ll have a chat with him. I know what it’s like to say things in the media. I’m sure there were only good intentions behind it. He’s only trying to get the best out of me as the Australian skipper,” said Maxwell.
Maxwell gave the answers very wisely and avoided any controversy in general. “There’s not much you can say. I’ve got to listen to him and I’ll be doing my best to get on his right side and do everything I can to play for Australia,” Maxwell added.
Earlier former Australian Captain Ricky Ponting, who is recently appointed as the assistant coach for the Australian T20I squad also backed Maxwell’s inclusion in the side after Chris Lynn has been ruled out of the team due to the calf injury.
