Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who recently earned a call back to the national side for the upcoming ODI series against a visiting New Zealand in the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy 2016, has set his eyes on a possible test comeback. He was recently overlooked for the home Test series vs South Africa, as he eyes the India tour for a Test return. Despite Maxwell being known for his dominance in the shorter formats of the game, he has recently come up with good performances in the domestic level, especially in the longer format, as he challenges for a spot back in the national Test side.

“I thought I might have been a chance. The way I batted in my first game back at the MCG against the reverse-swinging ball against Queensland, I thought that was a really good sign of the improvements I’ve made in my defence, technique and the way I leave the ball. But the way the selections have gone I’m probably looking at the Indian series now. I think I’ve probably missed the boat for the home summer. I changed a few things slightly technically and slightly mentally as well, more so the way I look at the game and the way I start my innings I think that’s going to be a big change heading into this one-day series about starting my innings and making sure I get into the game, and not sort of throw it away too early,” said Maxwell, reports Reuters.

“Whether that comes from white ball cricket or any sort of cricket I’m playing whether they come down and watch me at Fitzroy-Doncaster and see how I’m going in club cricket it doesn’t matter. I’m going to be trying to make as many runs and taking as many wickets and show them the improvements I have made,” Maxwell concluded, added Reuters.
