Glenn Maxwell will open the batting against India in ODIs: Andrew McDonald, head coach for Australia

Andrew McDonald, the coach of Australia, has provided an update on Glenn Maxwell’s condition. The all-rounder is being considered for the forthcoming ODI series against India, if he recovers in time. Due to a leg ailment, Maxwell did not participate in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Yet, he is recuperating well from his injury and has shown signs of returning to the field.

McDonald stated that the Test series against India would put a great deal of pressure on Maxwell, but he believes the all-rounder will be able to play in the ODIs from March 17 to 22.

“If Maxwell completes all necessary requirements, he will be a starter for the upcoming one-day series (against India that follows the Tests). Everything after that will be discussed “The coach was quoted by as stating.
Maxwell fractured his leg following Australia’s elimination from the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. The 34-year-old cricketer fell at a friend’s party and subsequently underwent surgery before recuperating.

“During the past three and a half months, there have been several early morning sessions, gym, rehabilitation, pool sessions, and physio. Fox Sports cited Maxwell as stating, “I’m proud to be nearing the finish of that process and to be ready to play some cricket again.”

He also lamented his absence from the present Test series against India, in which Australia has lost the first two matches. He stated that the accident-related injury will likely plague him for the rest of his life.

“It will continue to bother me for the rest of my life. It’s great to be able to see your teammates play, particularly over there. During commentary for a Big Bash League (BBL) match on Fox Cricket, Maxwell stated, “I think they’ve got the best side I’ve seen travel over to India since I’ve been watching Tests over there, anyway.”
