Glenn Maxwell feels Australia have been “outstanding” within the first two Tests in opposition to India barring the one self-destructing session in Delhi on day three. Australia misplaced 9 wickets for 52 runs of their second innings to squander the slight benefit that they had initially of day three. “I think they’ve showed a lot of fight. Bar that one session I thought they were outstanding. It’s bloody difficult over there – it’s not an easy place to play, it’s so foreign for us.
“But I really feel like, other than a few little moments, we have been within the struggle, we have been matching India at totally different instances and so they’ve proven plenty of struggle,” he was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.
Among the current lot, Maxwell is the only one to have scored a Test century in India alongside Steve Smith.
“It’s simply sticking it out for slightly bit longer and I’m positive that’ll be the message, to maintain attempting to remain up with India and take a maintain of these key moments within the sport.
“At the start of day three [in Delhi] I thought we were well ahead in the game, and to be ahead of India at any stage of a Test match over there is a sign we’re doing the right things, it’s just doing it for a little bit longer,” he mentioned.
Maxwell has been named within the ODI squad for the three video games in India starting March 17. He has not performed worldwide cricket since breaking his leg at a birthday celebration in a freak accident final November.
“I’ve been in constant touch with the selectors for a while now, and it probably hasn’t happened as fast as I’d like,” he mentioned.
“I probably would’ve liked to be playing a little bit earlier, but the fact I knew the timeline for the one day side and the realistic goal, I was able to manipulate my rehab program to fit that timeline I was racing against.
“After the World Cup last year I was pretty cooked, and it’s never nice to have a break of this magnitude, but it’s also not the worst timing to have a little bit of time away from the game and I did spend most of it in rehab, physio and gym sessions, but it was a nice little refresher. Hopefully this will extend a little bit of time at the back end of my career.”
