Cricket Victoria will welcome all-rounder Glenn Maxwell after a span of 853 days. The Aussie all-rounder has been named in Victoria’s squad for the Marsh One Day Cup game against Queensland.
Glen Maxwell won the Man of the Series award in the recent Australia vs Sri Lanka T20I series. He scored 138 runs in the series, whereas he also bowled some handy overs. Maxwell played a huge role in Australia’s 4-1 win in the series. Maxwell last played for the Vics on October 23, 2019, when he scored two and took 1-28 against Western Australia at the WACA.
Chris Rogers welcomes Glenn Maxwell for Marsh One Day Cup
Victorian coach Chris Rogers has said that they are “very fortunate” to have Maxwell back in the Victorian team.
“The form he’s in, and we’re pushing for the (final) in the one-day competition, so it’s a huge bonus for us,” Rogers said to cricket.com.au.
“It’ll actually be the first game I’ve coached for Victoria where he’s been playing, we just haven’t seen much of him so whenever we do it’s a bonus.”
“Someone like a Jake Fraser-McGurk or Mackenzie Harvey, who even in the field are exceptional fielders, getting to compete with Maxi that’s going to be exciting and a great learning experience for them.”
“We’re blessed with some of the senior players we have for Victoria and Maxi is one of those as well.”
#OnThisDay in 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣1️⃣, Maxi was welcomed into the RCB Family with open arms and the rest as they say is history. 🤩💪🏻
