Cricket News: Will Glenn Maxwell play in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy? | Glenn Maxwell injury update: when will he return?

Glenn Maxwell is set to return to cricketing action after a nearly three-month-long injury layoff as he will play for Victoria in their Sheffield Shield encounter against South Australia. However, prior to that, Maxwell will have to play for Fitzroy Doncaster in the Victorian Premier League and then undergo a successful fitness test to make it to the Victorian XI.

“To bring a player of Glenn’s calibre into the squad is exciting, he has a fantastic record in Shield cricket and it’s a shame he hasn’t been able to play more of it,” David Hussey, Head of Male Cricket for Cricket Victoria, was quoted in a report by ESPN Cricinfo.

Maxwell broke his leg in a friend’s birthday party in November 2022. That ruled him out of the home Tests in Australia but more importantly also the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. However, given the aforementioned latest development, there is an outside chance of him making it to the Test roster for the final two games basis his performance in the Sheffield Shield games.

Regardless, there are good chances of Maxwell featuring in the ODI series in India next month, which will be ideal preparation for the World Cup scheduled to be held in the country later on this year.

Maxwell was reportedly in queue to make it to the Test squad during Australia’s tour to Sri Lanka last year. However, he could not make the cut eventually. The 34-year-old has played only seven Tests so far and the last one of those was against Bangladesh in Chattogram over five-and-a-half years ago in September 2017.

However, he has played two games each across Australia’s last couple of tours to India in 2013 and 2017 respectively. He even notched an impressive unbeaten century (104) in Ranchi in the third Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2017.
