Glenn Maxwell eyeing a return to red-ball cricket
News Desk || risingbd.com
Limited-overs specialist Glenn Maxwell has not given up hope of making a return to Test cricket and is eyeing off an away series on the subcontinent at the end of the current ICC cycle as his best opportunity to do so.
Maxwell has played just seven Tests for his country, with every one of those red-ball contests coming outside Australia and his most recent appearance more than six years ago.
In that time Maxwell played a major role in helping Australia claim their inaugural ICC Men's T20 World Cup title in Dubai in 2021 and then starred once again during the Aussies' recent successful ICC Men's Cricket World Cup campaign in India.
While Maxwell knows he is better suited to the limited-overs format of the game, the 35-year-old still feels he can make an impact at Test level and wants to continue to put his name forward for selection ahead of Australia's final series of the current World Test Championship cycle.
Australia are scheduled to travel to Sri Lanka at the start of 2025 to battle it out for the Warne-Muralitharan Trophy in what looms as a crucial series in the run into the World Test Championship final later that year and Maxwell harbours aspirations to be involved.
