Australia’s swashbuckling all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has said that the Indian team should remember that they haven’t won a single game against them this summer and the co-hosts intend to keep it that way in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2015 at Sydney on March 26th against the defending champions.
“I think we targeted them pretty well this summer. They haven’t won a game against us all through the summer. Hopefully that is pretty clear in their memories.
“We can make the most of that (all win record). We’ve been dominant all summer in the ODI format. We want to continue that.”
But Maxwell did praise the Indian team’s consistency that helped them reach the semi-finals. India are currently undefeated in the tournament after winning seven matches in a row courtesy great team play and awe-inspiring captaincy from MS Dhoni.
“India are a very good side. They wouldn’t be here in the semi-finals if they weren’t a good side. We have to bring our A game when we play them this week,” the IPL star said with a note of caution,” he added.
When asked whether Australia would have a special plan against Virat Kohli, who tormented them in the Border-Gavaksar Trophy, Maxwell expressed that there won’t be a separate but a general game-plan for India which has been the case all summer.
“We haven’t had a team meet yet, but it will be pretty similar to the summer. We did pretty well during the summer against them. I am sure we will go ahead with similar plans and we will have a few tricks up our sleeve,” Maxwell concluded.
