Will probably haunt me for the rest of my life: Maxwell
Australia’s star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell said missing the upcoming tour of India due to a freak injury “will haunt me for the rest of my life”.
Maxwell suffered a ruptured tibula in his left leg during a friend’s birthday party in November last year, an incident that sidelined him for three months.
“Will probably haunt me for the rest of my life,” Maxwell commented during a Big Bash League game on Fox Cricket.
“It is good to get a chance to watch my team-mates play, especially over there. I think they’ve got a team that’s probably as good as I’ve seen in India as I’ve been watching Tests there. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy will begin on February 9 with the first Test in Nagpur.
Australia, who have not won a Test series in India since 2004, will also play in New Delhi (17-21 February), Dharamsala (1-5 March) and Ahmedabad (9-13 March).
The Test will be followed by three ODIs – Mumbai (March 17), Visakhapatnam (March 19) and Chennai (March 22).
While Maxwell will miss the Test, he could be back for the limited overs series.
He said, ‘Unfortunately he will not be able to reach the end of the BBL. But he has been very diligent in his return to play with his rehab. He’s been down a bit at St Kilda Football Club and been at Junction Oval with Cricket Victoria,” Melbourne Stars coach David Hussey told SEN earlier this month.
“I dare say by the end of January, he could be available or trying to hit some cricket balls and get on that plane for Australia’s one-day tour of India to play some state cricket and Shield cricket.” can expect to climb.”
