Glenn Maxwell is not happy for the Bangladesh Test series getting postponed, which was scheduled in October this year.

Maxwell was named in the Australian Test squad for Bangladesh tour to play Test series. Later, the series was postponed due to security concerns. After Bangladesh series got postponed, Maxwell was overlooked for the national team Test squad.

In domestic cricket, Maxwell played for Victoria after the Bangladesh series got postponed. He struggled In the Matador BBQ’s One Day Cup; though he performed great in the Sheffield Shield after that.

Maxwell reckons that the postpone of the Bangladesh tour affected him in mentally.

He told Fairfax,“(The Bangladesh postponement) probably affected me more mentally than anything else.”

“I was pretty upset I was missing out on an opportunity to play for my country and really put a good step forward.”

“After playing so well in the one-dayers in England I was really looking forward to taking that into the Tests, to have that series ripped away from me and the squad to change when we got back to Australia was pretty upsetting.”

 

“It probably affected me too much, because it affected the way I played the game and the way I went about it.”

“It didn’t reflect too well on myself … and it showed in my results as well.”

“Since the Shield stuff has started I’ve tried to put that all behind me … almost start from the bottom rung and work my way back up.” 

The Australian all-rounder also has some thoughts about his bowling.

He said, “I’m pretty understanding of where I sit in the Test rankings.”

“I’ve probably got to bowl some medium pace for a start, and probably spin the ball the other way to Nathan Lyon.”

“I know if I come in and spin the ball the same way as Nathan Lyon it’s … more likely I’ll be used to get through some handy overs, rather than be a key bowler.”

“I’m understanding that I need to have a weight of runs and consistent wicket-taking, as a partnership- breaker type of bowler.”
