Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is an integral part of the white ball setup. However, he has not been able to make a similar kind of impact in Test cricket. Maxwell made his Test debut in 2013 but has only played seven games till now. His numbers also don’t back his selection in the team.

Maxwell though is very optimistic about making a Test comeback. The swashbuckling batter said he has worked on his technique and is keenly waiting for an opportunity.

“It’s definitely realistic. I think I am probably playing as well as ever have at the moment. I feel really good about my game. I have been able to work on different techniques for different formats, which has really helped going forward.

“I have been in constant contact with selectors and they have been really clear about if opportunities do pop up then I am ready for red ball,” Maxwell was quoted as saying on cricket 365.

Australia are going to play a lot of Test cricket going forward. They are set to tour Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India next year and Maxwell is confident that if he is playing well during that time, he will have a great opportunity to bag a spot in the squad.

“There is a lot of cricket next year, you don’t want to burn guys out through the season so there could be a host of changes. So, I have to make sure I am playing well when they pick those squads in any format,” he added.
